Investigative Committee Head instructs to substitute investigators and management of Moscow region departments
The ICR Head gave such an order after the reception of citizens in Khimki.
Chairman of the Investigative Committee (ICR) Alexander Bastrykin held a reception of citizens in Khimki. 36 regional residents communicated with the Head of the department, most of them complained about the actions of district investigators.
As a result, Bastrykin saw about the staff rotation at some investigative departments of the Moscow region, the report stated on the Committee's website.
The chairman "faced the low quality of the investigation process in some districts of the Moscow region." Thus, both the leadership and ordinary employees may be replaced, the Investigative Committee's message states.
It was noted that the residents of Domodedovo, Balashikha, Khimki, Orekhovo-Zuevsky and Voskresensky districts, as well as the town of Rybinsk in the Yaroslavl region, touched base with the Head of the department. The ICR Head revealed some gross procedural violations, or instructed to conduct an internal audit of those cases which were "dragged out at the preliminary investigation."
