In Moscow, more than 90 investigators quit the Investigative Committee over the summer - this is more than 10% of the entire staff of the Main Investigative Committee of the Investigative Committee for Moscow (700 people). It is reported by Astra, citing sources.
According to the interlocutors, the issue of personnel outflow was raised at an internal meeting. It was also said that in July-August alone, more than 90 investigators resigned of their own free will. The source claims that mostly experienced specialists leave, for example, lieutenant colonels, or, conversely, very young employees.
Another interlocutor attributed the high percentage of layoffs to the lack of paper and office supplies since December last year. According to him, investigators buy everything they need for their work with their “already low salary.” In addition, the employees of the UK now do not have drivers. Many employees do not like the ban on traveling abroad.
“Since June 1, all drivers have been fired, now investigators get to the scene of incidents on their own, often even by subway. Many are tired of the fact that the employees of the Main Investigative Committee of the Investigative Committee for Moscow have a strict ban on traveling abroad, while no one can provide a legal justification for this.”
Many investigators “can't stand it” because the department “takes away the trains that investigators or interrogators of the Ministry of Internal Affairs should investigate for no reason,” another source explained.
“The funny PR of the Investigative Committee is that, on behalf of the “chairman,” the investigators conduct illegal procedural checks (they did not provide the orphan with housing, they did not provide the pensioner with medicines), that is, they replace the general prosecutorial supervision.”
So, every month the Investigative Committee, instead of investigating criminal cases, goes more and more "into delusional PR and social and cultural activities," the interlocutor concluded.
