MOSCOW, September 30 (Itar-Tass) —— The Federal Drug Control Service has proposed a bill for tightening punishment of its officers involved in drug trade, first deputy head of the Service Vladimir Kalanda said at the Friday meeting of the Service Public Council.
“We have drafted a bill, which tightens punishment of our officers involved in drug trafficking. This is simply impermissible for our officers. We cannot call it a misconduct or a mistake. That is a premeditated crime,” he said.
Eighty criminal cases were opened against 78 drug control officers this year, including 53 on corruption charges. Eleven officers were convicted in the first half of 2011.
Sixty-six tax declarations submitted by drug control officers last year contained violations, Kalanda said. “We will dismiss officers concealing their incomes,” he said.
