Businessmen Sergej and Alexander Salmanov charged

Businessmen Sergej and Alexander Salmanov, father and son, were charged with bribery September 27 and face five to 12 years in prison.

Businessmen Sergej and Alexander Salmanov, father and son, were charged with bribery September 27 and face five to 12 years in prison.

“Prosecutor of the Special Prosecutor’s Office accepted the proposal of the investigator of the National Criminal Agency (NAKA) and filed a charge against accused Sergej and Alexander S. for bribing – in connection with promising and giving a financial bribe to the head of tax office,” Special Prosecutor’s Office spokeswoman Andrea Predajňová told the SITA newswire.

The prosecutor refused the request of Alexander Salmanov to be released from custody and sent this request to the due court to be decided.

The Salmanovs were detained in April and are now in custody, charged with having bribed the employee of Tax Office in the town of Šamorín. The Sme daily wrote that they allegedly promised her €100,000 and Sergej Salmanov might have attempted a fraud worth €75 million. Alexander was fined €3,500 in connection to a shooting near a Bratislava-based hotel. He was convicted only of disorderly conduct for shooting at a moving car containing the former business partner of his father, Ľubomír Somorovský.
