Skuratov Investigated

  • The Prosecutor General?s Office has officially extended its probe into alleged abuse of power by its former head, Yury Skuratov, Interfax reported Tuesday.

    Federal prosecutors maintain that Skuratov accepted more than a dozen expensive suits from a Swiss construction company as a bribe.

    Investigators have, however, decided to drop charges related to a videotape that allegedly pictures Skuratov in bed with two prostitutes, according to the agency.
