The Investigative Committee of Russia opened an investigation into investigation officers Sergey Dubinsky and Andrey Trinev. They are suspected of bribe-taking in the amount of at least five million roubles (Part 6 of Article 290 of the Criminal Code of Russia).
They were arrested red-handed by investigators of the Central Office of the Committee and the Directorate M of the Federal Security Service of Russia. They will be charged in the nearest future, following which the investigation will motion the court to decide upon the measure of restraint.
Combating crimes involving corruption has a special place in the work of the Investigative Committee of Russia. Intolerance to such facts and the absence of condescension towards colleagues who have redeemed the appearance and integrity of an officer is fundamental to this work. The investigation does not intend to conceal neither the criminal facts themselves, nor the persons who committed them, especially when it comes to the investigating officers - those who violated the oath. On the contrary, the Investigation Committee approaches to the investigation of such crimes with all severity.
