Deputy head of Amur Federal Supervisory Natural Resources Management Service arrested for bribes
The official faces up to six years in a colony.
The Blagoveshchensk City Court arrested deputy head of the regional department of Rosprirodnadzor Alexey Malyshev, who is suspected of taking a bribe. This is the press service of the court.
The case file states that the testimony on Malyshev was given by his subordinates. Since the court has reason to believe that Malyshev may escape or put pressure on witnesses, the most stringent preventive measure was applied to him.
According to investigators, the official received 40 thousand rubles ($600) from the local entrepreneur, promising to assist him, using his official powers.
The detention of Malyshev took place at one of the parking lots near the shopping center in Blagoveshchensk. The operation was carried out by officers of the Federal Security Service of Russia in the Amur region.
According to the court decision, Alexey Malyshev is arrested until February 8.
