GROZNY, July 26 (Itar-Tass) —— Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov dismissed all deputies of the Grozny mayor and the chiefs of the departments for violations in the land and flat deals.
“I had a meeting at the Grozny mayor’s office, where were found violations in the use and distribution of lands and flats and, therefore, decided to fire all deputies of the Grozny mayor and the chiefs of the departments,” the Chechen president said at a meeting with the republican chief law enforcers.
Kadyrov noted that many problems were found in this issue and the republican authorities should combat corruption. “I instructed the Grozny mayor to reshuffle the lineup of the mayor’s office,” the Chechen leader said.
For his part, Chechen Interior Minister Ruslan Alkhanov noted that seven bribe-taking cases and three bribe-giving cases were exposed in the republic from the beginning of this year.
“Six bribers were found and the criminal cases on eight crimes were passed to court. A total of 104 crimes against the republican authorities were exposed in the Chechen Republic and the criminal cases against 20 defendants were passed to court,” Alkhanov underlined.
