SBU exposes corrupt judge on EUR 5,000 bribe
The SBU officers jointly with the detectives of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau under the procedural supervision of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office exposed the judge of an Ivano-Frankivsk regional court on a bribe.
The law enforcers determined that the judge demanded from the head of the commercial structure EUR 5,000 (UAH 155,000). For this sum, the official promised “fast-track” economic case on bankruptcy of the enterprise.
The SBU operatives detained the judge an entertainment facility in the regional center on his receiving the illegal financial gain.
The issue about serving a notice of suspicion of committing a crime to the detainee and choosing a measure of restraint is now being settled. The urgent investigative actions in the framework of the criminal proceeding initiated under Part 3 Article 368 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine are under way.
