MOSCOW, September 29 (Itar-Tass) —— The court verdict to open a criminal case against the chief police officer in the Stavropol Territory Alexander Oldak, who earlier commanded the Altai territorial police department, is cancelled.
“The chief of the Altai territorial investigation department of the Investigation Committee cancelled the court verdict to open a criminal case against the former chief police officer in the Altai Territory Alexander Oldak over the lack of evidence,” a source in the Investigation Committee told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
“The chief of the investigation department has taken the decision after the examination of the case files,” the source added.
The Investigation Committee reported on Wednesday that an office abuse case was opened against Oldak, who was appointed as the chief police officer in the Stavropol Territory less than two months ago.
“The detectives found out that at the post of the chief police officer in the Altai Territory from July to November 2008 Alexander Oldak concluded with the chief of the Barnaul Law Institute of the Interior Ministry Nikolai Mikhailov a false contract to provide paid education services seeking for money misappropriation. Ten million roubles were transferred to the institute’s account that the institute’s chief spent at his own discretion,” spokesman of the Investigation Committee Vladimir Markin said. The detectives found that the sides were not going to execute the contract terms.
The criminal case was opened under Article 286 Part 3 for office abuse with grave consequences. The Altai territorial branch of the Investigation Committee opened the criminal case against Nikolai Mikhailov.
Alexander Oldak was appointed as the Stavropol territorial chief police officer in late July.
