Investigation of a probe into embezzlement of over 3 million rubles completed

The Main Investigative Department of the Investigative Committee of Russia finished investigation of a probe into former head of Operative and Search Information Centre of the Moscow Air and Marine Transport Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Dmitry Donik. He is accused of committing offenses under Part 3, 4 of Article 159, Part 1 of Article 222 of the Criminal Code of Russia (embezzlement of funds by fraud on a large and especially large scale; illegal traffic in firearms and ammunition).

According to investigation, Donik at different time received 3.4 million rubles in total from representatives of two commercial banks, allegedly for settling issues of launching probes in the interests of credit institutions with law enforcement officers. However, not having an opportunity to influence their decisions, he didn’t hand over the money to anyone but appropriated it.

Apart from that, a search conducted at Donik’s residence in terms of investigation discovered an illegally stored pistol and ammunition for it.

The investigation gathered enough evidence, therefore the probe was sent to the Prosecutor’s General Office of the Russian Federation for approval of indictment and subsequent referral to court.
