Swindling added to list of charges against ex-deputy head of Tambov region Federal Penitentiary Service
The former Federal Penitentiary Service officer faces up to 6 years’ imprisonment for swindling, and even more for the totality of charges, the ICR noted.
The former deputy head of the Federal Penitentiary Service Directorate (FSIN) in the Tambov region has been accused of swindling.
As reported by the press service of the ICR regional office, a criminal case of swindling (Art. 159 of the Russian Criminal Code) has been initiated against the officer (name not disclosed).
According to the investigation, the ex-deputy head of the regional directorate of the Federal Penitentiary Service had fraudulently received a total of 1.1 million rubles ($18.5 thousand) from the father of one of the convicts.
It is reported that the money had been transferred in two tranches of 500 and 600 thousand rubles. At the same time, the FSIN officer had promised the bribe-giver the release of his son on parole, but in fact he had not taken any action.
On this charge, the former deputy head of the Federal Penitentiary Service Directorate in the Tambov region faces up to 6 years of imprisonment. However, the ICR representatives noted that the punishment is likely to be more severe. Earlier, the person accused had already been charged with bribery and official misconduct. The court is currently considering these cases.
New details appear in the case against Samara prosecutor Andrei Pavlov. These details indicate close ties between the regional law enforcement system and criminal world. The main element of their relations is money. This confirms once again: neither reforms nor salary hikes for law enforcement officials can eliminate the trivial human greed. The main principle of corrupt officers is: if the position allows to make ‘side’ money, you must do so.
