At the request of President Nazarbaev, the chairman of Kazakhstan’s Supreme Court, Mikhail Malakhov, was dismissed from that post yesterday by a resolution of the country’s Senate. Malakhov has been indicted for taking bribes which allegedly include more than 100,000 US dollars and three sedan cars. He was first accused by a Supreme Court justice, and Nazarbaev suspended him from duty pending the results of the State Security Committee’s investigation, which are now in. Malakhov, however, has in the meantime left Kazakhstan for his native Russia. (Interfax, Xinhua, June 3)
