Posted by Info on 19/01/2011

Lt.Gen. Alexander Bokov, has been detained in Moscow on embezzlement charges.
Bokov, whose 2009 registered annual income was one million rubles (about $33,000), has been accused of stealing $46 million. He is suspected of extorting $46 million in 2005 from a Russian businessman for assistance in buying a majority stake in a transport company, Markin said.

Over the last few years, Russia has seen two high-profile corruption cases, including one with Lt. Gen. Alexander Bulbov, a former senior drug control official, who received in 2010 a three-year jail term for illegal schemes with his retirement payments and abuse of office.

In 2006, another top official from the Emergencies Ministry, Gen. Vladimir Ganeyev, was charged with organizing a criminal group, abuse of office and falsifying investigation documents over a period of six years and sentenced to 20 years in prison.
