MOSCOW, September 14. /TASS/. Spokesman for the Russian Investigative Committee, Vladimir Markin, who holds the rank of Major-General of Justice is leaving the agency, his future work will not be linked to the current one, a source close to the investigative bodies told TASS.
"He is changing the scope of his activities, since he got another offer where he will be able to tackle similar ambitious and responsible tasks," the source said.
The Investigative Committee declined to make any statements on reports of Markin’s resignation. "We do not comment on this information," the Investigative Committee’s press service told TASS.
The Life online resource earlier reported that Markin was stepping down as the Investigative Committee spokesman.
Markin took up this position in the autumn of 2007. At that time, the Investigative Committee was part of the Russian Public Prosecution Office.
