New Police forces in Russia ? No Corruption? No Brutality?

Posted by Info on 26/08/2011

Interior Minister Rashid Nurgaliyev has declared victory in the war on corruption in his ministry.

“In the past, there was bribe taking, abuse of power, corruption. … There’s none of that now.”

About 183,000 officers have been fired since the re-accreditations began in March. By 2012, the ministry plans to have axed 22 percent of its staff, lowering the total number to 1,106,472.

Nurgaliyev, who is currently touring the regions to evaluate the results of the re-accreditation, said new hires would have to have a legal education, while existing officers will have to take special courses.
