MOSCOW, July 31 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow’s Western Administrative District leadership has decided to pull down the Matveyevsky food market by January 1, 2015, the prefecture’s spokesperson, Olga Veldina, told the Izvestiya newspaper on Wednesday.
Another four markets will be closed. Thus, only three food markets - the Dorogomilovsky, Kuntsevsky and Krylatsky markets - will continue working by 2015, Veldina said.
“We’re operating within the federal programme. Sales points will remain in permanent structures,” she said, adding that the prefecture controlled the situation and struggled against unauthorized trade.
Magomed Rasulov, who was arrested and accused of attacking a policeman, sold watermelons illegally and without a certificate. “Watermelons start to be sold from August 1 that is why his sales point was annulled,” Veldina said.
The city authorities say the checks will be conducted oftener and sudden for sellers.
Last Saturday, several people clashed with the police at the marketplace Matveyevsky in western Moscow. About 20 comers from southern regions attempted to seize a man, who is suspected of raping a 15-year-old girl, from the operatives. As a result a policeman has got a heavy head injury and was brought to the intensive therapy ward.
On the orders from chief of the Moscow police department Anatoly Yakunin the police are taking operational actions aimed to decriminalize the Moscow marketplaces, the press service of the Moscow police department told Itar-Tass.
The investigating agencies opened a criminal case for an attempt on the life of a law enforcer over the attack on a policeman. The police have detained a man and a woman, who are suspected of attack on the policemen.
