Both prosecutors have been dismissed from their posts for a gross violation of the law of Ukraine on prosecutor's office, the rules of prosecutorial ethics, as well as committing actions defaming the title of the prosecutor and provoking doubts of objectivity, impartiality and purity of prosecution authorities.
As reported, Sept. 27, the PGO General Inspectorate in collaboration with the Security Service of Ukraine detained Kharkiv region Volchansk district deputy prosecutor and Kharkiv regional prosecutor's office prosecutor while receiving a bribe.
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.
