The ICR in the Tula region has initiated a criminal case against the first deputy head of the Tula Federal Penitentiary Service Directorate for taking a bribe on a large scale. This is reported on the website of the ICR Investigations Directorate in the Tula region.
According to the investigation, Vsevolod Snurnitsyn has received a bribe of 300 thousand rubles ($5.2 thousand) from a prisoner serving his sentence for swindling. In exchange, Snurnitsyn promised to assist in mitigating the punishment for the detainee, as well as ensure facilitated conditions of custody. The 300 thousand rubles Snurnitsyn received were just a part of the bribe. The first deputy head planned to get 1.3 million rubles for his help.
The prison officer has been detained; a preventive measure is currently being elected for him.
In late May, a private Sud-Aviation Gazelle helicopter has crash-landed in the Khabarovsk krai. As a result, a 72-year-old man died from heart seizure. Another passenger has got a spinal fracture, while the third one – the pilot – came out of the accident with only a minor brain concussion. Later it became known that the deceased person was an FSB colonel general, the one with spinal fracture – a former overseer of the Khabarovsk krai, while a prominent Khabarovsk businessman had piloted the helicopter. The CrimeRussia obtained some exclusive information about this strange company.
