SBU exposed corruption in the ritual service of Kiev
Officials traded burial sites in the capital’s cemeteries. The amounts ranged from $ 3,000 to $ 50,000, depending on the location.
According to the materials of the SBU, the suspicion was announced to the deputy director of a specialized communal enterprise Special Combine PKBO and the director of one of the capital’s commercial enterprises. They extorted bribes in the amount of three to 50 thousand dollars for burial places in Kiev cemeteries, informs press service of the SBU.
“Extortion of money for“ services ”was carried out by two Kiev-based intermediaries, who presented themselves as workers in the capital’s cemeteries. In fact, one of them is a private entrepreneur, the other is unemployed,” the message says.
