Law enforcers expose "parking mafia" in Kyiv

The culprits were detained on bribe charges

Law enforcers in the city of Kyiv have exposed a group of four employees of the Kyivtransparkservice municipal enterprise, who systematically demanded bribes from businessmen for setting up parking lots in certain locations. Four officials from Kyivtransparkservice were detained while receiving part of a bribe for issuing documents giving the right to use one of the city's parking lots.

During operational actions, the law enforcers also revealed that the perpetrators had organized a scheme of extortion bribes from entrepreneurs for licensing their operations in the car park business across the capital. The culprits were detained under Article 208 of the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine. The detainees will be served with charge papers for committing a crime under Part 3 of Article 28 and Part 3 of Article 368 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (receiving a bribe). The probe is under way.

However, the press service has not specified when exactly the group had been detained. As UNIAN reported earlier, the head of the moral and psychological support department at the Armed Forced of Ukraine was taken into custody upon receiving a bribe.
