Bokov previously headed the Main organizational-control inspector of the Interior Ministry, now the Organizational Inspection Department.

In addition to the general were also arrested his alleged accomplices. They turned out to be Director of the International Development Fund Cossacks Michael Kramer and director of "Stroibeton" Sergey Stepanov.

As a result, without seeing any money or shares, resentful businessman complained to the police, who took intermediaries in rapid development.

The criminal case is filed under "fraud on a large scale", but it is possible that in the future it will add a few more offenses. From anecdotal evidence that emerged after reports of detention of the general, it can be concluded that its business consists of several episodes, each of which featured a hefty sum.

For example, the source of the agency "Rosbalt" refers to the three accomplices Bokova, with whom he extorted under various pretexts, 10 million dollars at the head of some transport companies, and 35 million in the same currency as the chairman of the board of a bank, and his wife.

Investigation Committee reported on the detention Bokova stressed that the general director of the Bureau for the positions "was not endowed with managerial or administrative functions in the system of internal affairs agencies of the Russian Federation." Nevertheless, even without controlling and distributing, Bokov and his associates were able to purchase a variety of real estate in Moscow and Moscow region, as well as in Cyprus and the UK.
