SBU detains own officer on taking bribes
Officers of the SBU Internal Security Directorate in cooperation with the Prosecutor General’s Office detected a senior operative of the SBU Central Office on taking bribe.
The major promised a citizen from the Middle East to settle an issue of granting a refugee status in the State Migration Service for UAH 150 000.
The law enforcers detained the SBU officer ‘red-handed’ downtown Kyiv, immediately after the bribe taking.
The criminal proceeding was initiated under Part 3 Article 368 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. The question concerning notification of suspicion and
a measure of restraint against the offender stands to be decided.
Urgent investigative actions to establish possible accomplices of the major in other state and law enforcement structures are under way.
