It was found that the operation of inspection and seizure of documents was carried out in the framework of operational and investigative work.
The source of the news agency denied the information that the work of special services related to the criminal case, which was previously filed against one of the bailiffs service employees, who received a bribe of 300 thousand rubles in September 2016 from the businessman in exchange for a promise to protect him from the inspections.
