Investigation into former governor's bribery charges finished
MOSCOW, February 29 - RAPSI. The law enforcement agencies have finished investigating former Tula Governor Vyacheslav Dudka, who was charged with accepting a large-scale bribe, a police source told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI) on Wednesday.
Investigators suspect that Dudka and the Property and Land Relations Department head accepted a 40 million ruble ($1.4 million) bribe in exchange for a land plot of 2.5 hectares to build a hypermarket in Tula.
Dudka is presently under house arrest. He faces from five to ten years in prison and a fine a dozen times the bribe amount.
In mid-February, investigators brought charges against the GRINN corporation director who allegedly bribed Dudka.
