Dnipro region: SBU exposes Police Investigator on USD 10,000 bribe
The law enforcers established that the captain of police extorted USD 10,000 from a local resident for avoiding criminal prosecution for allegedly committed fraud. The official involved his friend, a lawyer, as an “intermediary” for getting this illegal benefit.
SBU operatives detained criminals on receiving the whole amount of bribe.
The issue about serving a notice of suspicion of committing a crime to the detainees and choosing a measure of restraint is now being settled.
The pre-trial investigation in the framework of the criminal proceeding initiated under Part 3 Article 368 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine is under way.
The detection operation was conducted jointly with the Military Prosecutor's Office and the National Police Internal Security Unit.
