Entrepreneur who ate bribe faces trial
A businessman from the Tver region tried to bribe an officer of the Ministry of Internal Affairs to avoid administrative liability for alcohol trade without a license but failed.
On June 27, the Penovsky District Court will consider the case of the entrepreneur who attempted to pay a bribe of 15.000 rubles ($237) to a police officer in March 2018.
In the spring, a curious case was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in the Tver region. Law enforcement officers carried out preventive measures, after they received information about the illegal sale of alcohol in one of the shops of the Penovsky district of the province. The audit confirmed that the entrepreneur sold alcohol without a license and accompanying documents.
The owner of the store tried to solve the problem giving 15 thousand rubles as a bribe. However, the officer immediately reported the fact of a bribe to the police on duty and called an investigative-operational group. Then, trying to avoid punishment and hide the traces of the crime, the citizen ate one of the banknotes at face value of 5 thousand rubles.
The destruction of evidence resulted in nothing; a criminal case was initiated against him, now he faces a real term of imprisonment.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
