Another criminal case has been initiated against the former security official.
The investigation revealed another fact of taking a bribe by the former first deputy prosecutor of Bashkortostan Oleg Gorbunov, now accused of taking two bribes on an especially large scale (part 6 of article 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). This is stated on the website of the regional head office of the TFR.
In return for the bribes received, the ex-silovik contributed to the release of several defendants from criminal liability.
In particular, the investigation established that Gorbunov received 3 million rubles from one of the defendants, in connection with which a criminal case was initiated against the former deputy prosecutor.
The ICR recalled that in addition to Gorbunov, 8 more defendants are involved in the case, including the former deputy head of the prosecutor’s office of the republic Artur Sharetdinov and the prosecutor of the Sovetsky district of Ufa Ramil Garifullin.
