Sverdlovsk region: two security officials detained in case of $30k bribe
In exchange for this money, the suspects promised to resolve an issue under bankruptcy proceedings.
In the Sverdlovsk region, FSB officers have detained two men related to law enforcement bodies, Ura.ru reports. According to the publication’s sources in security agencies, the detentions took place as part of the investigation into a criminal case of large bribe. The detainees are suspected of receiving about 2-million-ruble ($30,469) bribe for solving an issue under bankruptcy proceedings.
According to the agency, one of the detainees is former criminal investigator of the Economic Security and Anti-Corruption Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Pervouralsk, Marat Adiullin, who is currently engaged in business. The second is Adiullin’s former colleague, Molokov, who works in the police of Yekaterinburg.
The Federal Security Service Directorate in the Sverdlovsk region have confirmed the detention. The press service refused to provide any comment.
Press Secretary of the MIA Main Directorate in the Sverdlovsk region Valery Gorelykh said that “it’s premature to speak about unambiguous conclusions in the story in question.”
It takes time for our colleagues from the FSB, who conducted the operation, as well as from the investigating authorities, who have yet to find out all the details, to establish all the circumstances of the incident. If the above-mentioned employees are proved to be involved in any violations of the law, they will be held liable, including criminally,” Gorelykh said.
