MOSCOW, April 27 (Itar-Tass) — The Moscow Judicial Qualification Panel has terminated the powers of Chairman of the Moscow Tverskoi district court Igor Alisov as of April 27, 2012, the press service of the Moscow City Court reported.
Alisov was chairman of the Tverskoi district court for two years after he had served as a judge at the Moscow District Military Court. Alisov was a judge in numerous notorious criminal cases, including a riot staged in Manezhnaya Square after a soccer fan was killed in 2010.
Shortly after his appointment to the Tverskoi district court it became obvious that the new court chairman failed to establish order in one of the busiest city courts. Too many complaints were e-mailed to the Moscow City Court. In 2010-2011 the Tverskoi district court was on "top" position in the number of complaints filed against Moscow courts in general.
Nonetheless, after abandoning the post of the court chairman Alisov will continue to work there in the capacity of a criminal court judge, the Moscow city court said.
Establishing contacts with citizens by means of the e-mail service on an official site became one of the priorities for ensuring an open dialogue between the senior staff of the Moscow City Court and the visitors to its site, the press service said. In 2011 the number of visitors to the Moscow City Court website was over ten million, it said.
