Moscow region Investigative Committee to be reformed
The Head of the Investigative Committee gave instructions to rotate the staff of some investigative departments, replacing both the leadership and ordinary employees.
Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia Alexander Bastrykin signed the so-called protocol of orders for the reorganization of the Moscow region Investigative Committee (ICR). Head of the Personnel Department Alexander Yakovlev should submit proposals on staff rotation of some investigative departments, replacing both the leadership and ordinary employees. By October 12, the official checks will be conducted against the officials of the investigation departments for Voskresensk, Orekhovo-Zuevo, Domodedovo and Sergiev Posad. The head of the Moscow region ICR, Andrey Markov, was instructed to conduct an extraordinary examination of personnel.
According to the press service of the Investigative Committee, Bastrykin decided to reorganize the regional ICR after the reception of citizens who complained about the work of the investigators.
It should be noted that earlier information about serious personnel reshuffles in the Moscow region ICR appeared after the scandal in Noginsk district. In December 2017, the Investigative Committee instituted criminal proceedings under part 1 of Art. 285 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Abuse of Official Powers) concerning their former employees. The head of the ICR department for Noginsk, Dmitry Lisanin, and senior investigators Nikolay Tsarev and Oleg Valuev are suspected of attempting to obtain unlawful remuneration from the applicant in two criminal cases. Investigators did not investigate swindling on an especially large scale and concealed their inaction. Later, a story was revealed.
