4 000 UAH for the permission to cut trees

The Prosecutor of the Transcarpathian region instituted criminal proceedings against the master of the forest over the bribery in the amount of 4 thousand (Part 2 of Art. 368 of CC of Ukraine - punishable by imprisonment for a term of five to ten years with confiscation of property and deprivation of the right to occupy certain positions or engage in certain activities for a term up to three years).

It has been established that in early September, 39-year-old master of the forest of Lopukhovo Forestry of "Yasinya LH" in Rakhiv district, demanded and received bribes from a resident of Transcarpathia. In exchange for the money master of the forest promised to "look away" and not write a protocol over the illicit felling of 4 cubic meters of wood. In addition, he personally marked another 10 trees, which he also allowed to cut down. The police detained him while receiving the bribe.

The investigation continues.
