VLADIMIR, March 7 (Itar-Tass) — Investigators opened a criminal case against the deputy operations chief of the regional police department, suspected of building a house at a business person's expense, a local law-enforcement official told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
The investigator said the high-ranking police officer, at the post of deputy director of the economic security department, concealed the fact of tax evasion by the owner of a commercial firm in the period from 2008 through 2010.
"The investigator has reasons to believe that the policeman took a bribe from the businessman as payment for the works to build a private house worth 4.5 million roubles," the law-enforcement official said.
Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin identified the suspect as Oleg Rybakov.
Criminal proceedings against him were opened over "taking a large bribe."
According to the Investigative Committeee's spokesman, the businessman had not paid over 180 million roubles in taxes.
A court will decide on the measure of restraint for the police official."The investigators are ascertaining all the circumstances of the crime," Markin said.
