The newly-established State Investigation Bureau has detained a director of the Defence Ministry's enterprise on suspicion of accepting a 2,000-dollar bribe.

The suspect demanded the bribe for helping a person to dodge military service. Otherwise, he threatened punishment and urgent conscription.

In 2018, the Defence Ministry was planning to sign up around 18,000 conscripts. The target has been met by 98%.
