“As the police discovered, Bobokalon Toshev committed and administrative felony: being a Tajikistan citizen, he arrived to Moscow in June 2004 with a legal right to stay until August 2004; however, instead he remained in the country and kept evading officials,” Natalya Bychenkova, press secretary of the Penza region court, informed PenzaNews.
After Bobokalon Toshev had been detained, he attempted to evade administrative penalty by bribing the police officer, she clarified.
“He placed an envelope with 5,000 rubles on the table of the head of the police investigation department, but failed to achieve the means he sought, as the police officer declined the bribe and reported the incident,” she explained.
According to her, the money in question was seized for the state.
“The convict appealed the decision, but the appeal was dismissed by the Penza regional court judge board,” she concluded.
