Bryansk former deputy head sentenced to three years suspended for bribery
The court found Alexander Gorshkov guilty of illegal enrichment in the amount of 1.5 million rubles.
The Sovetsky District Court of Bryansk sentenced now-former deputy governor Alexander Gorshkov to three years conditionally with a probation period of three years for receiving a bribe of 1.5 million rubles ($22.400). However, the ex-official was found guilty of fraud, TASS reports.
As the investigation established, Gorshkov offered a victory to a commercial organization in the bidding for the supply of equipment to the Bryansk Regional Industrial Park. The convict requested 1.5 million rubles. At that time, the ex-official was the deputy director of the Silicon El Group and, according to the court, could not influence the outcome of the bidding. Therefore, the prosecution retrained the accusations of fraud.
Gorshkov was detained by FSB officers in April 2018. Also, the court imposed a fine of 400 thousand rubles.
The arrest of Rauf Arashukov was a signal to the other senators: not only the governors but also members of the Federation Council, have lost the status of untouchables. So, it’s time to learn to live modestly, without inappropriate luxury. The most perspicacious realized this a few years ago and stopped giving their beloved ones.
