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.
Several new criminal cases against corrupt officials have been instituted in Dagestan. The high-ranked suspects include Abdulmedzhid Suleimanov, ex-Mayor of Izberbash; Amir Magomedov, ex-Head of the Izberbash Administration; Magomed Dzhelilov, Head of the Derbent District; and El’dar Karagishiev, Head of the Babayurt District. In the past, all of them were suspected of similar crimes – but somehow managed to get off the hook. The new arrests occur amid the anti-corruption campaign in the republican law enforcement structures. What are the true reasons behind the new wave of the personnel purge? Can the anti-corruption slogans conceal a fierce battle waged by local clans for redistribution of assets with the purpose to create a new ‘untouchable’ elite in Dagestan?
