Deputy Prosecutor General and Chief Military Prosecutor of Russia Sergey Fridinsky, who send in resignation the other day may become Deputy Minister of Justice.
This was reported to Interfax by an informed source, noting that there have long been talk about Sergey Fridinsky's resignation.
Fridinsky's vacant position may be taken by Prosecutor of Buryatia Valery Petrov or Head of the Prosecutor General's Office for the Supervision of Inquiry and Operational-Investigative Activities Sergey Ivanov, the agency said.
April 22, the Federal Council in charge of the appointment and dismissal of Prosecutor General of Russia and his deputies confirmed the information about Sergey Fridinsky's intention to resign. The question of the resignation of Fridinsky, who has been holding this post for 11 years, will be discussed on April 25 in the committees on constitutional legislation and on defense and security.
Former member of the Federation Council believes that this once again points to numerous violations and falsification of evidence during the investigation of his criminal case on charges of bribe-taking in the amount of 27.5 million rubles ($457 thousand).
