As it became known"Crime. Is NOT PRESENT", at the end of the last week the staff of economic department the Organized Crime Control Department of Regional Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine in the Nikolaev area covered the next institution in which, despite a ban, gaming services were provided.
Seven slot machines were installed and worked round the clock in one of bars located in пгт Veselinovo of the Nikolaev area.
Interestingly that the institution in which gaming services were provided, is at distance of 150 meters from the Veselinovsky District Department of Internal Affairs. And even this fact didn't frighten the owner of pub. From clients there was no release even in the afternoon.
All slot machines were withdrawn.
Not clear there is a position of the chief of the District Department of Internal Affairs. Really he didn't see what occurred directly at it "near by"?
We will remind that quite recently, the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Yury Lutsenko sounded that chiefs of the District Department of Internal Affairs will be rigidly punished if near regional departments narcobrothels and working gambling institutions are found.
At present the issue of attraction to criminal and administrative liability as administrator of the slot machine hall, and owner of an institution is resolved.
We will remind that according to Art. 3 of the Law of Ukraine "About a gaming ban in Ukraine" application of financial sanctions to subjects of managing who illegally are engaged in the organization of hazardous business in the territory of Ukraine, in the form of penalty imposing of more than 5 million UAH with confiscation of the gaming equipment, and also criminal prosecution according to the current legislation is provided.
