SBU exposes corrupt head of the police unit in Lviv region
Officials of the Security Service of Ukraine exposed one of the heads of Skoliv police section of Stryi unit of the Main Directorate of the National Police in Lviv Oblast on a bribe.
Special service operatives have established that the police major extorted UAH 65, 000 from a local resident. For this amount, the official promised not to bring the man to responsibility for the forged materials on allegedly committing road accident. In case of non-payment, the policeman threatened a citizen with criminal prosecution.
Law enforcers detained a policeman at the time of receiving the entire amount of unlawful benefit.
The issue about serving a notice of suspicion in committing a crime to the detainee and choosing a measure of restraint is now being settled.
The investigative actions are under way within the criminal proceeding initiated under Part 3 of Article 368 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. The information about involvement in the unlawful activities of the Police officials is being checked.
The detection operation was conducted jointly with the DBR under the procedural supervision of the Prosecutor’s Office.
