MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The Resurrection City Court of the Moscow Region issued a verdict in a criminal case against the former deputy head of the department for the development of industries, investments and entrepreneurship of the local administration, Pavel Volkov. He was found guilty of committing crimes under Art. 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (taking a bribe).
The court established that Volkov received bribes from entrepreneurs for assistance in various issues of their commercial activities, including the placement of stationary trade objects, obtaining contracts for the repair of road surfaces, as well as for general patronage.
The total amount of funds received was approximately RUB 1.4 million.
Due to the fact that the merchants voluntarily reported the fact of the transfer of bribes, they are exempted from criminal liability.
The state prosecution in court was supported by the Voskresensk city prosecutor’s office.
On the basis of the cumulative crimes, Volkov was sentenced to 8 years in prison with serving in a strict regime correctional colony.
The verdict did not enter into legal force.
