The SBU exposes a corrupt judge of Kyiv Regional Administrative Court
Officers of SBU Department for Fighting Corruption and Organized Crime together with the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAP) exposed a corrupt judge of the Kyiv Regional Administrative Court.
SBU operatives established that the judge demanded USD 10,000 from one of the participants in the trial of an administrative case, for a biased decision. Law enforcers arrested the female criminal at her workplace on receiving the first part of the bribe amounting to USD 2,000.
The criminal proceeding was initiated under Article 368 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. Currently SAP prosecutors are deciding on serving the judge with notice of suspicion in committing the crime and applying to the High Council of Justice a petition for removal from office.
The urgent investigative and operative actions are under way.
