Vladivostok: Bosses of fighter against corruption to be held responsible
The law enforcer himself will be dismissed. He is charged with taking bribes from representatives of an illegal gambling business in the region.
In Vladivostok, an employee of the Department of Economic Security and Combatting Corruption of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the region will be dismissed after service check. In addition, a criminal case of a bribe has been initiated against the police officer; according to the investigation, he had received it from the owners of an illegal casino. The direct management of the gambling business 'protector' will be brought to disciplinary responsibility.
According to the regional Investigative Committee, the economic security employee received a bribe of about 120 thousand rubles ($2,000). In exchange for this amount, the police officer would turn a blind eye to the gambling organization's violations in the field of legislation.
Earlier in Vladivostok, participants of a criminal group engaged in organizing and conducting gambling were detained.
Larisa Markus, ex-President of failed Foreign Economic Industrial Bank (Vneshprombank) made a deal with the investigation and named her brother Georgy Bedzhamov the mastermind behind the embezzlements and siphoning off funds from the bank. Was there an arrangement between the relatives–bankers on who shall demonstratively go to jail and who shall take the blame for all the crimes and abscond abroad with stolen billions of rubles? Vneshprombank co-owner Georgy Bedzhamov is currently beyond the reach of law enforcement structures and creditors. Perhaps, it is now time for everybody to forget about the fugitive banker? Especially taking that, according to The CrimeRussia sources, some persons are interested in ruining the case against Bedzhamov.
