NOVO-OGAREVO, August 8 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has instructed Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika to take “under personal strict control” the investigation of crimes in the forestry sector.
Putin said at a working meeting with the prosecutor general that “we need not the number of opened criminal cases, but the result regarding the situations and offences that you have revealed.”
“You should take this under your personal strict control,” the Russian leader stressed.
“All the measures that are currently being taken, including those linked with the investigation of the criminal offence cases, should be taken under strict control,” Putin stated.
He thanked Chaika for the work that has been done in this sphere. “Please, present to me your written proposals so that I could formulate related instructions to the government and stimulate the State Duma to consider these highly important bills,” the president stated.
Chaika proposed, in particular, to accelerate the process of taking stock of the forest fund’s lands, complete the work on the bill on the regulation of the turnover of round timber and adopt at the level of federal districts programs for combating crime in the forest industry complex.
