Chaika suggests to transfer cases against Investigative Committee employees to Prosecutor’s Office
The Prosecutor General is sure that it will help to improve business climate in the country.
Head of supervising department Yuri Chaika suggested to hand to prosecutor's office powers on investigation of criminal cases concerning employees of the Investigative Committee of Russia (ICR). The Prosecutor General has read this offer during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, noting that such change of the legislation will improve business climate in the country.
Besides, Chaika told what measures were taken in recent years by prosecutor's office for the last one and a half years. In particular, according to requirements of the department about 50 billion rubles for the executed contracts were returned to business. He noted that the Prosecutor General’s Office also carried out inspections of supervisory authorities. “For violations of the law in this sphere at the initiative of prosecutors over 60 thousand officials are involved in disciplinary and administrative responsibility”, Yuri Chaika told.
To recall, the Prosecutor General's Office supports return of a part of the lost powers from the moment of allocation from its structure of the Investigative Committee of Russia in 2006-2011. Last time Yuri Chaika declared need of expansion of public prosecutor's supervision for the ICR during the performance in the Federation Council on April 26.
