YEKATERINBURG, August 2 (Itar-Tass) — The Prosecutor General's Office /PGO/ demanded the resignation of Sverdlovsk region road police chief Yuri Demin because of a sharp increase in the car crash death toll.
The press service of the PGO department in the Ural Federal District told Itar-Tass on Thursday that a decision on the expediency of Demin staying in office is pending the results of the check into his performance at work.
"Deputy Prosecutor General Yuri Ponomaryov sent an official statement to the regional police chief, Mikhail Borodin, in which he stated that the number of car crashes with lethal outcome in the region had sharply increased. "As many as 369 persons, including 19 children, died in the first six months of this year. A total of 2,400 road accidents were registered in the designated period, up 5.7 percent from the same period last year," Ponomaryov said.
"People continue to die in road accidents. The largest terrible car crash occurred on the Serov Way on July 28, in which seven persons were killed, including an infant. The culprit behind the accident has been held responsible for traffic rules violations 60 times, but has never been stripped of his driving license. Taking into account these circumstances, Yuri Ponomaryov demanded a service check on Demin and that the issue of his resignation be put on the agenda," the press service of the PGO department said.
