"The detained law enforcers are suspected of systematic extortion of $5,000 from businessmen for smooth clearance of containers with products. If refused, they threatened with criminal proceedings. Both prosecutors and their accomplice were detained red-handed," operation leader Vitalii Opanasenko said.

As reported, one of the corrupt prosecutors before meeting with a businessman who was supposed to give the money, took IQ tests in a bid to occupy a leading position in the local prosecutor's office.
