Scandal in BSU: Exam bribery
7:31, — crime
A bribery scheme, involving students who had to pay for exams, was found in the country's main university.
The scheme was exposed by the main department for organised crime and corruption of the Interior Ministry, Yezhednevnik reports.
An inspector of the dean's office of BSU's faculty of economics was detained during a sting operation. The preliminary results of the operation give grounds to suppose that the country's main university used a scheme to extort bribes from distance students. The practice was used on a wide scale involving whole groups of students, who have to pay for exams.
The inspector was taking money for several teachers of the faculty of economics. In other words, there was a big system of extorting bribes from students. Rather rich people, for example, directors of private companies, were often chosen as victims.
The inspector of the dean's office was detained as she was receiving 2,000 dollars in a Minsk cafe from a private company director, who studied at the university. The money was intended for a number of teachers from several students.
The Investigation Committee opened a criminal case against the inspector over part 5 of article 16 and part 2 of article 431 of the Criminal Code (solicitation of bribes).
Officers of the main department for organised crime and corruption and investigators of the Investigation Committee are figuring out which teachers were involved in the scheme. The detained 23-year-old woman is viewed as a sort of a transmitting element who was unable to organise the scheme.
