MOSCOW, December 9 (Itar-Tass) —— A police officer in the corruption security department in the Central Federal District is accused of corruption.
An operative from the sixth corruption security department in the Central Federal District Capt. Artur Tsaturyan, 32, is charged with fraud that entailed a major damage to the state and office abuse, spokesman of the Investigative Committee Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“The detectives found that on March 23 during the investigation into the criminal case Tsaturyan together with Lieut. Col. of Police Denis Kan have made a search and found the stamps of commercial organizations, which were important for the investigation,” Markin said. “However, intending to get the illegal profit, they misled the owner of the house that the found stamps were used to conceal their business revenues and evade the taxes by flight-by-night firms,” he said.
The police extorted 100,000 dollars from the injured party for not instituting the criminal case. The businessman had to give more than one million roubles to them.
“The investigation against Tsaturyan will be completed soon and he will begin to study the case files. Denis Kan escaped justice and was put on the wanted list,” the spokesman underlined.
