State Duma offered to give term for promising of bribe
This initiative was offered by member of the committee of the State Duma on safety and anti-corruption Andrey Lugovoy. According to him, it may help to prevent development of “corruption career of any official”.
Deputy of the State Duma and member of the committee of the lower house of parliament on safety and anti-corruption Andrey Lugovoy offered a new method of fight against corruption. According to him, it is necessary to impose criminal liability for the offer or the promise of a bribe.
“We now have an absurd situation. The promise of a bribe is recognized a preparation for a crime which is punishable only in cases if it concerns heavy or especially heavy article, that is from five years and more”, RIA Novosti provides his words.
Lugovoy emphasized that the promise itself or the offer should be punishable. Such measure, in his opinion, will interfere with the beginning of “corruption career of any official”.
Earlier it was reported that the scale of a bribe in Moscow area in 2016 grew by 3,5 times, exceeding one million rubles. In Moscow unfair officials on average began to take two million rubles.
Corruption is overwhelming in the Republic of Bashkortostan. It infiltrates all branches of power. The recent arrests in the Bashkir Prosecutor’s Office clearly show that justice can be bought and sold there, while the verdict of Themis depends only on the purse size. All powerful officials and businessmen in the republic know how much it costs to institute or dismiss a case. After the replacement of the regional head, the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation has found out that not only the supreme authorities of the Republican Prosecutor’s Office are involved in the corruption scheme – but judges and high-ranked police commanders as well. What officials have sullied their reputation with bribe-taking and are going to fall victims to yet another sweeping purge? What are millions of rubles paid for? What is the true scale of corruption in the region – champion among national republics by that parameter?
