RUSSIA’S INTERIOR MINISTRY WANTS MORE POWERS.
Publication: Monitor Volume: 2 Issue: 221
Interior Minister Anatoly Kulikov is campaigning for his ministry to have equal powers with the Tax Police. He is also asking that citizens be required to furnish the police with documentation showing how they came by the funds with which they bought expensive cars or houses, or closed lucrative deals. Kulikov says his officers need such powers in order to combat economic crime. (Radio Russia, November 21)
