MOSCOW, November 20 (Itar-Tass) — The Investigative Committee /SK/ called the statements by the Interior Ministry regarding the Oboronservis case "inappropriate spin".
"Due to numerous publications and comments by police officials on the crimes committed by executives of the Oboronservis holding and by a number of directors of commercial bodies, related to the activity of the Defense Ministry, the Investigative Committee explains that these criminal cases are being handled by the SK's main military investigation department," an SK official said.
"The role of police in these criminal cases is reduced to the fulfillment of certain instructions issued by the investigator. The official and therefore authentic information on the criminal case can only be issued by the investigative body handling the case. All other information is incorrect, unauthentic and is regarded as inappropriate spin which obstructs objective probe and the establishment of truth.
"In this connection, the SK warns about spreading the information which has not been coordinated with the investigators. Given the publicity, the SK intends to inform the public on time about the cause of the investigation into these criminal cases, but within the framework of the law and in the amount which does not contradict the interests of the investigation.
