Estonian official convicted of selling information to Russian businessmen
Yesterday, an Estonian court convicted an unnamed civil servant for selling official information to foreigners, Estonian dailies write. The official, described only as a 28-year old, admitted guilt and received a two-year conditional jail sentence. He will not serve any time unless he commits other crimes.
Apparently, the Russian oil company, Surgutgasprom, promised 6,000 euros to the man, who worked as a chief tax fraud inspector, for collecting information about the transit firm, Noil Group.
