Bryansk: Pyaterochka gets $17k fine for bribe
Supervisor of Pyaterochka grocery chain has bribed officers of the Russian Federal Service for the Oversight of Consumer Protection and Welfare with food.
The magistrate has issued a ruling in the administrative case against a Pyaterochka store in Bryansk opened for 'llegal reward on behalf of a legal entity'.
The magistrate fined Pyaterochka 1 million rubles ($17 thousand), according to Bryansk prosecutors.
Following an inspection to check Agrotorg's (the company is a part of в X5 Retail Group) compliance with anti-corruption laws, prosecutors of the Bezhitsky district (Bryansk) instigated an administrative case against the company for violation of part 1 of Art.19.28 of the Russian Code of Administrative Offenses.
The service discovered expired food on sale while inspecting a Pyaterochka store owned by Agrotorg in 2016, among other things. The shop supervisor gave the inspectors money and food (13,700 rubles total) to prevent them from fining the store.
Some of the inspectors were convicted of violation of article 291.2, part 1 (minor bribery) of the Russian Criminal Code, others of articles 33, part 5 and 291.2, part 1 (conspiracy to a minor bribe) of the Russian Criminal Code, depending on their role. The criminal case against the store employee has been terminated.
Businessman Mikhailov demands from Insider to remove two articles covering his membership in Solntsevskaya gang
In 2016, Mikhailov took advantage of the right to be forgotten, demanding Yandex and Google delete the hits on requests "Sergey Mikhailov Mikhas," "Sergey Mikhailov Mikhas Solntsevo," "Sergey Mikhailov Solntsevo" and other similar wording.
Vladimir Putin ordered the Service to “ensure suspects, defendants, and convicts live in conditions compliant with the Russian law and international standards” during a formal event held in the Kremlin on May 31. The event was held to celebrate officers and prosecutors promoted to higher-ranking positions and military ranks. Could it be that the Russian President paid this much attention to the Service due to a growing number of articles about bribery, murder, and scandals associated with the Service?
