MOSCOW, December 7 (Itar-Tass) — Deputy Head of a Federal Customs Service department Yevgeny Malyarov has been detained on suspicion of taking a large bribe, an official at the Investigation Committee (SK) said on Wednesday.
"The main department of the Investigation Committee opened a criminal case against first deputy head of the product range department under the Federal Customs Service [FTS] Yevgeny Malyarov by the hallmarks of crimes envisioned by Article 290, Part 4 [taking a large bribe], and against Igor Filippovsky under Article 291, Part 4 [giving a bribe], the SK said on its website.
According to the investigator, "Filippovsky, a broker agency employee, asked Malyarov in the first half of September 2011, to influence a decision on a range of imported goods for remuneration." The FTS Colonel agreed to help, and signed several documents in late November 2011. On December 5, 2011, Filippovsky passed to Malyarov 8,000 U.S. dollars at around 09:00, whereupon detectives detained him," the SK reported.
The investigator drew a petition demanding custody as the measure of restraint for Malyarov and recognizance for Filippovsky. Police retrieved documents at the suspect's offices and apartments which have significance for the case. The investigation into the criminal case continues.
