MOSCOW, August 15 (Itar-Tass) — A former employee of a military prosecutor’s office in the Baikal region was jailed for four years for attempted fraud, the press service of the Main Military Investigation Department, Investigative Committee, told Itar-Tass.
Former senior aide to the Borzinsky Garrison prosecutor Major Bogdan Rachinsky was found guilty of attempted fraud while using his office position.
The inquest ascertained that Rachinsky had told an arraigned man that he would personally support the prosecutor at the trial. Then he offered his assistance in securing minimal punishment. He priced his “services”at 200,000 roubles. In actual fact, Rachinsky had no idea who would support the prosecutor.
He was detained in October 2011 after receiving money form an intermediary. The court said the evidence against him, gathered by military investigators of the Eastern Military District, was sufficient for passing a guilty verdict.
The court also stripped him of the rank of Major of Justice.
