Vladimir Markin tenders his resignation
Vladimir Markin, the Investigative Committee official representative, has filed his resignation, according to Interfax.
The related information has been surfacing since September 14. The ICR official representative was said to become the Deputy CEO of the RusHydro on relations with public and state bodies.
Press reports were preceded by a scandal around Markin's book. The Kommersant and the Novaya Gazeta accused the ICR representative of the illegal use of their materials. Initially, Markin denied the allegations, however, later the Eksmo publishing house recognized that there were texts, belonging to the journalists, in Markin's book, and no references to the authors resulted from a technical error.
At the same time, the media started to speak of the resignation of Aleksandr Bastrykin, the Investigative Committee Head. Markin said the information is ridiculously false. Dmitry Peskov, the presidential press secretary, said that he didn't know anything about the matter.
On November 23 Markin turns 60 years old, which is the limiting age for him to hold the post.
