Three individuals detained by the Central Anti-Corruption Bureau within the investigation into corruption in the District Governor’s Office in Wołomin.
The officers of the Regional Office of the Central Anti-Corruption Bureau in Warsaw detained three individuals involved in corruption in the District Governor’s Office in Wołomin. Among the detainees are: former civil servants of the District Governor’s Office in Wołomin and the District Inspectorate of Building Supervision in Wołomin, as well as an entrepreneur operating in the real property development in the vicinity of Warsaw. The criminal activity consisted in receiving financial advantages by the civil servants of the District Governor’s Office in Wołomin and the District Building Inspectorate in Wołomin, who carried out official activities within administrative procedures concerning construction investments.
