General Military Prosecutor's Office moved to Prosecutor General’s Office
Who will head the new department in the Prosecutor General’s Office of Russia is still unknown.
The General Military Prosecutor's Office (GMPO) of the Russian Federation will be eliminated in January 1, 2017. In November 2016, the agency staff will be withdrawn from the staff, reported Rosbalt, citing a source in the GMPO.
Since the beginning of next year, the General Military Prosecutor's Office passed from the Ministry of Defence into the management of the Prosecutor General’s Office (PGO). It will become an agency as part of the PGO. At the same time, the formally present Head of GMPO Sergey Fridinsky is the Deputy of Prosecutor General Yury Chaika.
"We have been given the order to take a decision and notify the authorities until November 2016 about who is ready to go to the Prosecutor General, and who will retire in the status of servicemen,” - said the source of Rosbalt.
It is unknown whether Fridinsky will lead the new departmen. He holds the position of the Head of the GMPO from 7 July 2006. Sergey Fridinskiy more than once found himself in corruption scandals. It was charge with illegally obtaining by Fridinsky of two apartments in Rostov in 1998, when he was the Military Prosecutor in the North Caucasus Military District. He repeatedly wrote out himself and approximates bonuses on the basis of order of the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, although he was not the military. In its declaration the car Audi A8 has been specified, the value of which in the basic configuration is comparable to the annual income of the Prosecutor (about 5 million).
In the spring of 2012 the press caught the General Military Prosecutor on the arrival at a private reception in the company of the Prosecutor of the 318 Military Garrison Prosecutor's Office on Sakhalin Denis Gerasimov. In the same company it was also a criminal element, specializing in caviar smuggling. The ride was partly paid by the Ministry of Defence. Later, it was opened a criminal case against Gerasimov, and the General Military Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation turned out to be not guilty in this case.
On October 15, the Russian branch of Amnesty International reported on the abduction of its employee Oleg Kozlovsky by unknown persons during the monitoring of protests in Magas against the agreement on borders with Chechnya.
