After scandal with Kirkorov and Marouani new Head of Moscow police appointed
Russian President Vladimir Putin has appointed General Vyacheslav Kozlov the new Head of the Moscow Police and the Deputy Head of the Moscow Main Internal Affairs Directorate.
The corresponding decree was signed today by the President.
According to RBC with reference to the official representative of the Moscow police department, former Head of the public order in Moscow Kozlov will replace former Head of the Metropolitan Police Sergey Solopov.
Meanwhile, according to Life, personnel changes in the Metropolitan Police related to the recent incident between the leader of the French group Space, composer Didier Marouani, and his lawyer Igor Trunov with the Russian singer Philip Kirkorov.
On November 29 Marouani and Trunov were detained by police officers on the application of Kirkorov, who accused them of extorting 75 million rubles. On the reasons for the detention it was reported that the French composer with the help of his Russian fans caught Kirkorov's song Cruel Love in plagiarism on his composition Symphonic Space Dream.
The edition wrote that the arrest of Marouani and Trunov was initiated by Solopov, who has been serving as the Acting Chief of the Moscow police just past two months.
Recall that Yakunin's former deputy, Oleg Baranov, who two weeks ago replaced Head of the Research Affairs in Moscow General Yakunin, promised to mop up personnel in the Metropolitan Police in the near future. It was reported that before the end of 2016 it will be held a covert examination in all 125 district departments and 10 county offices of the Moscow police.
