MOSCOW, October 31 (Itar-Tass) — Head of the Interior Ministry’s main department Anatoly Yakunin dismissed all the senior police officials at the Khoroshevo-Mnevniki department, and ordered performance review for the remaining personnel.
On Wednesday morning, Yakunin chaired a conference over the situation at the Khoroshevo-Mnevniki precinct. Five police officers were fired: the deputy police chief for public order protection, the district police chief, his deputy, the deputy chief of the human resources department and a patrol service platoon commander.
The police chief for Moscow's north-western administrative district will have to take performance review; the district deputy chief for human resources has been reprimanded. The Khoroshevo-Mnevniki department is now under special supervision. The new police chief will be selected from another district.
The investigators said they would ask the court to arrest the three policemen from Khoroshevo-Menvniki district detained in Moscow on suspicion of murder of an Azerbaijan national with the view of coming in possession of his car, Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
Markin confirmed that the police had been detained on suspicion of abduction, extortion and murder.
Earlier in the day, the Interior Ministry said, "In the course of implementing operation materials, police of the Interior Ministry's department for the Central Federal District, jointly with internal security agents for Moscow's north-western precinct, detained three patrol service officers and their unemployed acquaintance. The police are suspected of involvement in the murder of an Azerbaijani citizen."
According to the Ministry, five young men were driving from Moscow to a settlement in the Moscow region overnight to September 6. They had a row, in which four suspects killed a citizen of Azerbaijan, and drove his BMW-530 to Moscow for sale.
The case materials were handed over to the SK department for Moscow. The suspects were relieved of their duties.
