Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree dismissing Alexander Buksman from the post of First Deputy Prosecutor General of Russia. On September 15, Alexander Buksman celebrated his 70th birthday, having reached the age, which, according to the law on the prosecutor’s office, is the maximum for service in the supervisory department.
The document states that Buksman was relieved of his post on September 15. Interfax interlocutor notedthat some delay in the promulgation of the decree is connected with the leave of Alexander Buksman.
He took up the post of First Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation in 2006, when the supervisory authority was headed by Yuri Chaika. He and his relatives were devoted to a series of high-profile anti-corruption investigations. Currently Yuri Chaika is an Plenipotentiary of the President of the Russian Federation in the North Caucasian Federal District.
In the Prosecutor General’s Office, Alexander Buksman supervised the Main Directorate for Supervision over the Execution of Federal Legislation, the Information and Analytical Directorate, the Legal Statistics Directorate and the Anti-Corruption Directorate.
Alexander Buksman signed an application to the arbitration court, thanks to which a controlling stake in ANK Bashneft was taken from AFK Sistema and transferred to the Federal Property Management Agency. He also explained to the State Duma deputies the need to remove immunity from their colleague from the “Fair Russia” Oleg Mikheev, accused of fraud, writes Kommersant. Now the former deputy is on the wanted list.
