MOSCOW, August 16 (RAPSI) – Investigators on Monday filed a motion to put acting chief Northwestern Tax Directorate’s anti-corruption department of Russia’s Federal Tax Service Maxim Rozsypalo suspected of bribery in detention, the Moscow City Court’s press service told RAPSI.

The Dorogomilovsky District Court of Moscow will hear the petition soon.

In July, the suspect conspired with other Northwestern Tax Directorate’s officials to systematically take bribes from a representative of a commercial organization for non-adoption of additional measures for tax checks of the legal entity, according to investigators.

The suspect’s alleged accomplice demanded $700,000 from the businessman for unhampered customs registration of one car, investigators claim. The mediator induced him to giving the bribe and received over 1 million rubles from him for registration of 20 cars. Later he gave the money to Rozsypalo.
