GOLITSYNO, Moscow region, March 29 (Itar-Tass) – Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has called for discharging officials, who violate traffic rules by skulking behind their status.
Speaking at a meeting devoted to measures to increase road traffic safety and reduce mortality on roads, Medvedev said this topic aroused concern among ordinary people.
“This pins hopes that we’ll be able to steer towards the civilized direction,” the prime minister said.
“I believe personal explanations don’t fly. It is necessary to punish duly by discharging 50 people by using their privileges. One should not bring to trial. Simply to discharge and this will do good,” Medvedev said.
He stressed that this was related to officials at different posts. “If he is a prosecutor, go out. Maybe, he is an ideal person... but if he uses these things, questions are raised,” the prime minister added.
“If we discharge several officials, most law-abiding citizens, including those who have certain privileges, will drive properly because it is more expensive to lose than to commit such legal wrongs,” Medvedev said, adding that it was necessary to put an end to such manifestations of feudalism.
