Ufa: Road patrol service officer takes bribe, tries to escape by stolen car
A criminal case under three articles of the Russian Criminal Code has been initiated against the law enforcer.
In Ufa, a Road Patrol Service officer tried to escape from his colleagues by stolen car after receiving a bribe; he had stopped the car's driver using his service weapon. This is reported by the press service of the ICR in Bashkiria.
It is found that while on duty, the inspector stopped a car at the crossroads of Koltsevaya-Ulyanovykh streets in Ufa; the car had swerved into oncoming traffic when turning. The traffic police officer offered the violator to pay him 2 thousand rubles ($34) instead of a fine. The driver accepted the offer. However, officers of the MIA State Road Traffic Safety Inspectorate’s Control and Preventive Department noticed the inspector's criminal actions.
Then he tried to flee the scene by car – he stopped a passing Shevrolet Niva; threatening the driver with a service weapon, he demanded that he continue driving.
Later, the fail corrupt official let the driver go, after which he was detained. Now he is charged with part 1 of Art. 291.2 of the Russian Criminal Code (Minor bribe-taking), part 3 of Art. 286 (Abuse of official powers with the use of violence or with the threat of its use), and part 4 of Art. 166 (Unlawful occupancy of a car without the purpose of stealing).
“Enthrone Rostik”. Ex-Mayor of Yalta, acquitted as per request of Prosecutor General’s Office, to return to power?
The Yalta City Court detained notorious developer Yuri Dubrovitsky who has defrauded more than 100 construction co-investors. The CrimeRussia found out that, in the past, Dubrovitsky was charged with swindling and illegal construction in Sochi – but escaped punishment and launched his construction business in Crimea with the support of Sergei Aksenov, Head and Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, and Andrei Rostenko, Ex-Mayor of Yalta. The criminal case against Rostenko was closed in December 2018 – Viktor Grin', Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, had personally interceded for him. By a weird coincidence, a day before the examination of the cassation appeal in the Moscow City Court, the State Council of Crimea has donated Russia Sanatorium and Resort Complex to the Prosecutor General's Office. The deluxe property 22.8 thousand square meters in size is worth 428.1 million rubles ($6.5 million); its closed territory occupies 14.5 ha of land; and it has a private access to the sea. It became known that Rostenko does not make a secret out of his ambitions to become the Yalta Mayor again. The CrimeRussia reviewed the most recent scandals involving ‘unsinkable' Rostik.
