MIA: Colonel Zakharchenko’s superiors dismissed
Kolokoltsev stressed that managers are personally responsible for their subordinates.
Vladimir Kolokoltsev, the Head of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs, said that Colonel Zakharchenko’s superiors had been dismissed. Zakharchenko is suspected of taking a large bribe. A raid on his apartments uncovered over 8.5 billion rubles ($143.5m). Zakharchenko is also suspected of another bribe received as a service.
"75% of all the corruption-related crimes our employees commit get uncovered by our own security department. Everyone knows that we have zero tolerance to retrospective terminations that would show that a particular employee who committed a crime does not belong to our department," Kolokoltsev told Rossiya 24.
"The managers know very well that they would be held responsible [for any misconduct of their subordinates]. We adhere to the principle of personal responsibility for the actions of our subordinates," added the MIA Head.
Kolokoltsev stressed that managers are personally responsible for their subordinates, and that is why Colonel Zakharchenko’s superiors were fired.
Dmitry Zakharchenko was arrested in September 2016. He served in the MIA Economic Security and Anti-Corruption Department, where he was acting head of the Department T, which dealt with offenses in fuel and energy.
Initially, the investigators accused the colonel of taking a 7m-ruble bribe ($118.150). However, a raid on his apartments uncovered over 8.5 billion rubles ($143.5m) in various currencies. The policeman could not explain where the money had come from.
On October 9, the Basmanny Court seized apartments that belonged to Zakharchenko’s common-law wife and daughter, as well as an apartment he owned worth 80 million rubles ($1.4m). A week later, on October 17, the Prosecutor General's Office filed a lawsuit seeking to convert the property into state revenue.
