Kherson region: SBU exposes corrupt deputy head of Prosecutor's Office
SBU employees under the procedural guidance of the General Inspectorate of Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine identified a corrupt deputy head of a local prosecutor's office in the Kherson region.
Special service operatives found that the prosecutor requested UAH 60,000 (circa $2,140) from the head of farming business, promising to “shield” him from criminal responsibility for violating the land-related legislation.
Law enforcers arrested the prosecutor in accordance with Art. 208 of the Criminal Procedural Code of Ukraine, near the place of employment, after receiving the whole amount of unlawful benefit.
At present the issue on serving a notice of suspicion in committing a crime stipulated by Part 3 Article 368 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine and choosing a measure of restraint to the detainee is being settled.
Pre-trial investigation is carried out by SBU Main Investigative Department.
