ST. PETERSBURG, December 1 (Itar-Tass) —— The chief of St. Petersburg’s energy committee has stepped down, the city governor’s press-secretary, Andrei Kibitov, told Itar-Tass.
Governor Grigory Poltavchenko accepted Vladislav Petrov’s resignation. The committee’s deputy chief, Vladimir Kukushkin, has been appointed the energy committee’s acting head.
Vladislav Petrov is a witness in a high-profile criminal case opened over the theft of three billion rubles from the budget of St. Petersburg, meant for the construction and repairs of thermal power and water supply facilities.
Four suspects in the case were detained and taken to Moscow. On Saturday, December 1, a decision will be made whether they should be remanded in custody. Another four persons involved have given written promise not to leave town and remain in St. Petersburg.
On Thursday, the office of the energy committee was searched. Governor Poltavchenko said the searches were made at his own initiative.
