SBU uncovers its own officer on bribery
The officials of the SBU Lviv Regional Office, SBU Internal Security Directorate and Military Prosecutor’s Office uncovered a corrupt security service officer.
The law enforcers established that the senior operative demanded USD 10,000 and reregistration of a luxury car owned by the holder of a Lviv entertainment facility. This amount the captain decided to extort for closing the criminal proceeding and ensuring seamless operation of the entertainment facility.
The SBU officers detained the bribetaker while receiving money in the city. The searches of workplace and residence of the suspect are going on. The criminal proceeding is initiated under Part 3 Article 189 and Part 2 Article 364 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. The senior operative is detained under Article 208 of the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine. The issue concerned notifying of suspicion and choosing the measure of restraint is being settled.
The SBU continues to purify its own lines from bribetakers. “While our sworn brothers execute military tasks in the ATO area, a number of “colleagues” take bribes in peaceful cities. I take the situation under my personal control before the just verdict is obtained”, the Head of the SBU Vasil Grytzak said.
