A former state police commissioner and a detective, who rendered services to Ukrainian businessman Dmytro Firtash, have been convicted of corruption on a large scale in Germany, according to the German edition DW.

"The former civil servant was sentenced to three years in prison for taking bribes on a large scale, the disclosure of official secrets and tax evasion. Wilkening, who calls herself a "private detective," will have to spend two years and ten months in prison. In addition to taking bribes, she was also found guilty of incitement to issue official secrets," DW wrote, with reference to the court's press service.
