MOSCOW, January 28. /TASS/. An employee of Russia’s Federal Bailiff Service (FBS) has been detained in Moscow for taking a bribe of 1.2 million rubles ($15,000) from an Austrian national, a spokesperson for the Moscow department of the Russian Investigative Committee told TASS.
"Criminal proceedings have been opened against employee of the Presnya district department of bailiffs of the Federal Bailiff Service’s Moscow directorate Vladimir Spirkov. He is suspected of committing a crime under part 6 of Article 290 of Russia’s Criminal Code (bribe taking)," Yulia Ivanova said.
According to investigators, Spirkov took a bribe of 1,200,000 rubles from an Austrian citizen in a cafe on Arbat (a pedestrial street in central Moscow) for doing nothing to enforce a court order. The suspect born in 1984 has been detained. The pre-trial measure will be chosen and charges brought against him in the near future.
TASS found out that the bailiff had to recover from the Austrian citizen 24 million rubles in favor of a bank by decision of the Court of Arbitration.
