In the Dnipropetrovsk region, the acting head of the territorial community has figured out a clever scheme to extort money from a local farmer.
At the end of June, the head of rural farmers appealed to the community to request an extension of his lease of land. He immediately refused. And the acting head of targamade instructed lawyers to prepare an appeal to the court about the alleged controversial land issues at the leased site.
After some time, the officer met with the farmer and offered to pay 500 thousand hryvnias to withdraw the appeal to the competent authorities and not to intervene in the economic activities of the farm. To disguise their acts of corruption, the acting head proposed to transfer this amount to the charity Fund that he controls. Half of the amount the farmer listed. And on Thursday, July 11, operatives of Department of protection of the economy of national police under the leadership of Prosecutor’s office stopped the corruption of rural officials and detained him.
Pre-trial investigation conducted in the framework of criminal proceedings opened under part 3 St. 368 (acceptance of an offer, promise or obtaining illegal benefit by the official) Criminal code of Ukraine.
