Alexander Bastrykin congratulates employees and veterans of investigative bodies on Investigative Committee’s anniversary

Chairman of the Russia’s Investigative Committee Alexander Bastrykin has congratulated all civil servants, workers, students of Committee’s academies and cadet schools and veterans on the anniversary of the Investigative Committee.

On 15 January 2011, Decree of the Russian president of 27 September 2010 No 1182 “Affairs of the Investigative Committee of Russia” commissioned an independent federal investigative body - The Investigative Committee – subordinate to the Russian President.

Employees of the Investigative Committee are on the frontline of fighting with crime. They work hard and do not spare themselves to restore justice, to protect citizens, the state and public against crimes. Professionalism and responsible attitude to our job, allow us to successfully solve and investigate murders and acts of terror, extremism, corruption, economic and tax crimes, as well as other felonies. We seek to keep abreast the time by preventing negative factors our state may face on the way of its development.

Unfortunately, in this uncompromised battle with crime we suffer human casualties. We will always remember those of us killed by criminals by paying our respects to them and their merits.  

The contribution made by veterans of investigative bodies into our work can scarcely be overestimated. Their invaluable professional experience and model of service and loyalty to the homeland help to raise the younger generation. A lot of meetings veterans have with cadets, students of Investigative Committee’s academies, beginner investigators instill in them respect to the law and love and pride for their profession.

Mr. Bastrykin expressed confidence that the Investigative Committee would keep maintaining the authority of the law and wished employees and veterans of investigative bodies wellbeing, self-control, optimism and success for the benefit of Russia.
