Prosecutor General's Office calls for resignations in Rosselkhoznadzor
The audit of the supervisory authority revealed massive violations in the department.
The Prosecutor General's Office (GP) called for resignations in the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor) after the inspection of the agricultural department. Auditors have identified an "additional burden" on business and conducting inspections without legal grounds. Kommersant writes this.
Inspections of the state of legality in the field of protection of entrepreneurs’ rights were held in 2016. The GP auditors found systemic violations of entrepreneurs' rights. In a number of regions, in particular, in the Novosibirsk and Sverdlovsk regions, a moratorium on inspections of small businesses was violated.
In other regions (Ivanovo, Kemerovo, Kurgan, Leningrad, Murmansk, Omsk, Sakhalin and Ulyanovsk regions, in Dagestan, Chuvashia, Tuva, Khakassia, Khabarovsk Krai and the Jewish Autonomous Region, as well as in St. Petersburg), inspections were held without legal grounds. At the same time, Rosselkhoznadzor employees formalized them as an administrative investigation to avoid coordination with the Prosecutor's Office. In addition, auditors named the use of administrative fines as an additional burden on entrepreneurs when they could be replaced by a warning.
The official representative of the Prosecutor General's Office, Alexander Kurennoi, commented on the situation, saying, "violations of this kind are of a systemic nature." In this regard, the supervisory authority insists on the resignation of persons responsible for violations.
Vice-president of the Opora Rossii (Support of Russia) Vladislav Korochkin believes that the reason for inspections and violations is the possibility of providing "related paid services in the framework of inspections." Thus, officials from the Rosselkhoznadzor are "artificially forced entrepreneurs to pay."
The Prosecutor General's Office reports on the results of the inspection to the Rosselkhoznadzor, stressing that certain officials of the department create negative conditions for observing the rights of entrepreneurs. The Rosselkhoznadzor, in turn, reports that at the moment the work "to establish the facts and causes of violations" is being conducted. In case of confirmation of information violators will face administrative penalties.
Businessman Mikhailov demands from Insider to remove two articles covering his membership in Solntsevskaya gang
In 2016, Mikhailov took advantage of the right to be forgotten, demanding Yandex and Google delete the hits on requests "Sergey Mikhailov Mikhas," "Sergey Mikhailov Mikhas Solntsevo," "Sergey Mikhailov Solntsevo" and other similar wording.
Vladimir Putin ordered the Service to “ensure suspects, defendants, and convicts live in conditions compliant with the Russian law and international standards” during a formal event held in the Kremlin on May 31. The event was held to celebrate officers and prosecutors promoted to higher-ranking positions and military ranks. Could it be that the Russian President paid this much attention to the Service due to a growing number of articles about bribery, murder, and scandals associated with the Service?
