PENZA, November 28 (Itar-Tass) — The Penza region court has sentenced former regional Agriculture Minister Marat Faizov to 7.5 years for taking a large bribe. Faizov will serve his sentence in a maximum security penitentiary. Also, the court ordered him to pay a 12-million-rouble fine which is a 60-time the sum of the bribe.
According to the inquest, Faizov received, on March 20, a 200,000-rouble bribe from a business person for "general patronage and illegal actions in favor of the administration of a commercial firm in resolving business issues."
Agents of the Federal Security Service and the Investigation Committee detained him as he was taking the bribe.
The investigators ascertained that Faizov had taken a 100,000-rouble bribe from the director of the same firm in 2011.
