Scandal in Sankt - the Petersburg Municipal Department of Internal Affairs
Large shifts in a management of law enforcement bodies have mentioned also St.-Petersburg. At first Anatoly Kulikov has accepted resignation of the chief of RUOP of Moscow Vladimir Rushajlo, and has recently temporarily discharged of performance of the duties of the chief of the Municipal Department of Internal Affairs of St.-Petersburg Yury Loskutova and chief UBEP of a city Nikolay Danilov. The formulation - in connection with investigation of criminal cases. Anything more concrete in the Ministry of Internal Affairs about it do not tell. Some details of an event managed to be learnt to correspondents to VLADIMIR - ALEKSANDROVU and ANNA - STRELTSOVOJ.
UBEP has lost war to Office of Public Prosecutor
to Trouble in Petersburg UBEP have begun in the beginning of year when the city Office of Public Prosecutor unexpectedly for all has closed the criminal case raised by field investigators of management against a management of the Maryinsky Theater. Field investigators tried to prove that art directors took bribes. But in the course of criminal case charge has not proved to be true. “ to us from the very beginning put a spoke in a wheel “ - field investigators were angry. The Office of Public Prosecutor had in this respect a opinion: proofs of fault of women under investigation have been collected with law infringement, field investigators have approached to investigation negligently, therefore business and has been closed. Moreover, concerning the field investigators who were taking part in work of an investigatory brigade, have filed criminal charges for excess of office powers.
but it was only first signs. Checks of Office of Public Prosecutor in UBEP fell down one for another. Employees of Office of Public Prosecutor have found out that militiamen trade in the confiscated alcohol, products and tobacco products, and also draw interest from resale of large parties of nonferrous metals. Militiamen have thought up for this purpose such scheme. They filed criminal charges (usually for non-payment of taxes) against a management of any firm, arrested the goods and transferred to its intermediary organisations for resale. The part of means after that left into the account of the Municipal Department of Internal Affairs, a part - in a pocket to field investigators. Criminal case was soon closed, and the damage to the suffered firm was not compensated. The Office of Public Prosecutor has specified in employees UBEP who were engaged in this sort of operations, but its signal remained not noticed management of management.
the Office of Public Prosecutor has given special attention to execution of the order of the chief of the Municipal Department of Internal Affairs of St.-Petersburg about check of foreign cars. According to it employees of the Municipal Department of Internal Affairs have acquired the right without assigning any reasons to withdraw a foreign car at their owners and to put on penal parking. It was back possible to receive the car only with the permission of the chief 2 - go Vladimir Shuljakova`s department UBEP. Employees of Office of Public Prosecutor have found out that reports on such withdrawals were made no means always, and have found out magazine with informal records about the detained cars from which follows that some materials about checks of foreign cars were written off without acceptance on them of any decisions. Thus, the future of cars entirely appeared in Vladimir Shuljakova`s hands.
In May the Office of Public Prosecutor of Petersburg has filed criminal charges upon negligent attitude of Shuljakova to official duties. As an occasion the statement of the owner of Audi at which militiamen have selected the car has for this purpose served and have not returned it. When the owner of the car all - taki has found it, it has appeared that it belongs already to other person. And it any more the first criminal case raised against Shuljakova. In March, 1996 the Office of Public Prosecutor of the Central area investigated the case raised upon “ causings of less heavy physical injuries “ to a certain Yury Kirpichevu. Kirpichev asserts that has been beaten by workers of militia, and on a confrontation has identified one of offenders. It was Shuljakov. On July, 16th, after an identification, Shuljakov has been arrested also to it have brought accusation in excess of office powers and compulsion to evidence.
field investigators UBEP have undertaken reciprocal steps. They “ naryli “ the compromising evidence on Office of Public Prosecutor of St.-Petersburg also have given to its general public prosecutor Yury Skuratov. However the information sent to Moscow has caused return reaction. Yury Skuratov has sent representation in the Ministry of Internal Affairs with the carrying out requirement in the Petersburg central board of check. Check has not kept itself waiting, and together with it there was a time resignation of the chief of the Municipal Department of Internal Affairs Yury Loskutova and chief UBEP Nikolay Danilov. However, say that on the posts they will not return any more. To the place of Yury Loskutova the person - the former classmate of the Minister of Internal Affairs Anatoly Ponidelko is already appointed new, though while also temporary.
there was an occasion to resignation
Ponidelko has come to the Petersburg militia in the spring of this year. The order of its minister have appointed to the post the deputy chief of the Municipal Department of Internal Affairs of St.-Petersburg across Leningrad region. This appointment has surprised the Petersburg militiamen: to operative work of Ponidelko no any relation had, served, as well as Kulikov, in internal troops, and directly ahead of appointment was the chief of political school. But right after its occurrences of the Municipal Department of Internal Affairs of Petersburg have excited hearings about Yury Loskutova`s possible resignation. By the way, shortly before elections of the city governor Anatoly Sobchak sent to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the letter with the requirement to appoint to a place of Loskutova of the new person. But Sobchak has lost elections, and the chief of the Municipal Department of Internal Affairs has quickly enough found common language with Vladimir Jakovlevym. The new governor stopped for the time being all attempts to remove Loskutova. To the chief of the Municipal Department of Internal Affairs offers repeatedly became to pass to work in GAI of Russia, but it rejected them.
right after announcements of time resignation of Rags has laid down in hospital. It is not known, whether there was it a tactical move or to it it became valid badly from bad news. According to people from its environment, he considers history with check only an occasion to the discharge.
Anatoly Ponidelko`s arrival at all has not pleased employees of the Municipal Department of Internal Affairs. Field investigators are afraid that at the new chief who has passed severe school of internal troops, they will be engaged in more drill, than operative work. For some time, approximately on three - four months, all Municipal Departments of Internal Affairs will plunge into registration of the documentation and will wait for the further shifts in a central board management, after all together with Ponidelko the new command for certain will come.
