The Head of Verh-Isetsky district is placed under house arrest until April 20.
Head of Yekaterinburg's Verh-Isetsky district Alexander Bredenko is accused of receiving a bribe of 150 thousand rubles ($2500), the ICR Department in the Sverdlovsk region reported this on Thursday, March 2.
Earlier, FSB officers detained Bredenko at workplace on suspicion of 150 thousand rubles bribe-taking from a local businessman for protection in the performance of a municipal contract for sanitation services in the district. After that, Burdenko was placed under house arrest until April 20.
It is noted that the charges against the official brought under part 2 of Article 290 of the Criminal Code (Bribe-Taking on large scale).
New details appear in the case against Samara prosecutor Andrei Pavlov. These details indicate close ties between the regional law enforcement system and criminal world. The main element of their relations is money. This confirms once again: neither reforms nor salary hikes for law enforcement officials can eliminate the trivial human greed. The main principle of corrupt officers is: if the position allows to make ‘side’ money, you must do so.
