Kirov Deputy Minister of Trade is arrested on suspicion of bribery
September 3, the Kirov law enforcement agencies detained the Deputy Minister of Regional Government Business and Trade Pavel Anufriev.
He is suspected of bribery.
According to the press-secretary of the ICR Investigative Administration for the Kirov region Mariya Merkulova, the official was arrested September 3 and taken to the Investigative Committee for interrogation. She said that Anufriev’s detention is associated with budget funds.
After the interrogation, the official was placed in a pre-trial detention center. The court will shortly select a preventive measure against him.
It should be noted that this is not the first time that the names of the Kirov officials have been mentioned in the news reports in connection with the investigation of corruption offenses. For example, in June this year police arrested the governor of the Kirov region Nikita Belykh. He is accused of accepting a bribe in the amount of 400 thousand euros for the provision of protection to several companies in doing business. Belykh himself, however, insists on his innocence and claims that he took money for the needs of Kirov. In late July, by the decree of the president, he was removed from the post of the head of the region in connection with the loss of confidence. Nikita Belykh is currently at a pre-trial detention center.Video: Exclusive video of Anufriev's detention (Vyatka State TV and Radio Broadcasting Company)
