Moscow: seven ICR investigators give in their collective notice
The management refused to accept the resignation due to improper execution.
Seven investigators of the ICR Main Investigations Directorate in Moscow had given in their collective notice, which the management has refused to accept. Such statements should be submitted personally, the department representatives explained, without explaining the reason for the collective demarche. The Committee’s central office will deal with the incident, Kommersant reports.
According to a source in the IC Moscow office, the investigators who have given a collective notice had long wanted to resign. The most famous of them is Levon Agadzhanyan, who investigated dozens of high-profile corruption crimes and the case of the shootout in Moscow City.
Mass protest rallies have been taking place in Moscow on a regular basis since the beginning of this summer. People are protesting for lots of different reasons. However, the reaction of the law enforcement authorities is always the same: repression. What is the reason behind the brutality shown during the dispersion of mass rallies? A conscious intimidation policy or incompetence of law enforcement functionaries escalating the violence and unable to imagine the potential consequences of this?
