Two GUEBiPK officers detained after searches
Law enforcement officers are suspected of malfeasance.
During the searches in the MIA GUEBiPK two members of the Сentral Board are detained. According to the TASS's source, law enforcement officers are detained on suspicion of committing malfeasance.
As far as the source knows, suspects are not aligned with Colonel Dmitry Zakharchenko's case, in the apartment of whom 8.5 billion rubles were found.
PASMI's sources inform that in the morning of December 8 searches in the apartments of 25th unit of the MIA GUEBiPK Department B (the public sector) employees were also conducted. Lenta.ru said that the investigation is carried out by FSB officers and the MIA BIA.
Earlier Life reported that searches are connected with the case of provoking the bribe taking. It is reported that so-called "torpedos", operatives, who under the guise of businessmen or interested customers come to the officials and provoke them to take bribes or kickbacks, become the reason for the raid.
Officials from the Ministry of Internal Affairs or the Federal Security Service, whose employees carry out investigations, are not commented on yet.
For similar crimes there were detained Head of the Russian Interior Ministry GUEBiPK Denis Sugrobov and his deputy Boris Kolesnikov. According to investigators, security forces officers tried to substitute the FSB officer, in particular, they planned to pass themselves off as businessmen and offer to take them "under the roof" for 10 thousand dollars a month. Investigators believe that at the order of GUEBiPK Head Denis Sugrobov, his subordinates and agents of defendants there were fabricated nearly 30 criminal cases. In mid-2015 Kolesnikov was killed by jumping from the window on 6th floor of the Investigative Committee building. Sugrobov is in custody.
Another well-known employee of the agency is the former Head of the MIA Anti-Corruption Central Board Department T, Colonel Dmitry Zakharchenko. On the contrary, he was recently detained on suspicion of taking multimillion bribes.
