“During the conversation in a veiled form, the teacher informed him about the need to transfer $1,000 to her for successful enrollment at the educational institution”says the court verdict.
When the man brought money to the teacher on October 11, the official indicated that he should write a statement about the transfer of this money as charitable assistance for the educational institution.
After the applicant left the application and money in the office, the law enforcement officers arrived.
Having enrolled in studies, the man wanted to avoid mobilization, the court’s verdict states.
