MOSCOW, February 7 (Itar-Tass) — An employee of the prosecutor's office in Novosibirsk was convicted for abetting a bribe, the Investigative Committee told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
The investigator and the court ascertained that in August 2010, the owner of the Alyans /Alliance/ lottery club Igor Suprun asked an employee of the Novosibirsk central district prosecutor's office Natalia Kulkina to asset in monthly handovers of 400,000 rouble-sums to the district prosecutor for dropping the case of administrative offense over violations detected during a check at the lottery club," the Investigative Committee said.
"Having agreed, the employee took the first part of the bribe worth 160,000 roubles whereupon agents of the Federal Security Service intercepted her actions," an Investigative Committee official said.
The evidence gathered by the investigator was acknowledged as sufficient by the court to pass a guilty verdict for Suprun and Kuklina. Suprun was found guilty of attempted bribery, and Kuklina of abetting a bribe. The court gave a three-year suspended sentence to Suprun, and a 1.5 year suspended sentence to Kuklina.
