Investigator caught on bribery knocked down Internal Security Directorate official during evasive driving
In the Moscow region, a Police Investigative Administration employee is wanted for receiving a bribe of 250 thousand rubles and knocking down a security official during pursuit evasion.
The incident occurred in the Voskresensky district of Moscow region. The Internal Security Directorate of the Russian MIA has received information about the Commander of Justice Evgeny Kosarin receiving bribes for failure to institute criminal proceedings against a suspected thief.
The investigator had demanded 250 thousand rubles from the detainee. During the arrest, when receiving money, Kosarin disobeyed field investigators and knocked down a road sign and an Internal Security Directorate employee after driving onto the sidewalk. After this, Kosarin, who was drunk according to an eyewitness, fled the crime scene.
The investigator’s abandoned car was later found; search operations to capture the offender are currently underway.
The prosecutors want the former Russian Federation Council member to go to prison for 14 years instead of 9 and pay a 500-million-ruble ($8.8 million) fine instead of 70 million rubles ($1.2 million).
