Now he will be responsible before the law not only for contact with a minor, but also for an attempt to give a bribe.
A resident of the city of Nurek, a 28-year-old resident of the rural jamoat Puli Sangin previously convicted under Article 237 (hooliganism) of the Criminal Code of Tajikistan, was detained by police officers on suspicion of giving a bribe on an especially large scale, reported by the press center of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Tajikistan.
He offered the police a large sum of money for exemption from responsibility for an intimate relationship with a local minor girl.
«The suspect on July 27 this year in the recreation area “Somon Plaza” in Nurek entered into an intimate relationship with a 17-year-old local resident. This became known to law enforcement agencies. In order to conceal his act and evade responsibility, he offered 70 thousand somoni to the officers of the criminal investigation department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Khatlon region and was detained at the time of giving a bribe», – press center reports.
Now a criminal case has been opened against him under Article 320 (bribe-giving) of the Criminal Code of the Republic of Tajikistan.
