Khmelnytskyi: SBU exposes two corrupt officials
SBU officers exposed a corrupt top officer of the unit and an investigator of the Main Department of the National Police in Khmelnytskyi region.
The law enforcers established that the officials organized a scheme of receiving the unlawful benefit for assistance in avoiding the military conscription and the military service. Using personal relations, the police officers found those who wished to avoid the military conscription or to get a postponement, then “solved the issue” with the military enlistment office. The offenders valued their “services” from USD 500 to 1,500 per recruitee.
The law enforcers detained the police officers on receiving the USD 1,300 bribe.
Both detainees were served a notice in committing the crime; the issue of choosing a measure of restraint is being decided.
