Russia’s Investigation Committee to be Reformed

Russia’s President, Dmitri Medvedev, issued a decree dissolving the Investigation Committee of the Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation, a body responsible for the investigation of major crimes.  He formed in its place a new Investigation Committee of the Russian Federation, thus substantially increasing the status of the organization. All 20,000 former Committee employees were formally dismissed, but most of them will apparently be accepted to the new organization.
