SBU officers under the procedural supervision of the Prosecutor's Office exposed on systematic bribes a senior specialist of administrative services unit of the State Service for Transport Safety in Volyn region.
The SBU operatives established that the official created a mechanism of obtaining illegal financial gain from transport operators for issuing permits for international consignments.
