The Krasnodar Regional Court invalidated the diploma of higher legal education of the deputy head of the investigative department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Krasnodar – the head of the investigative unit German Yalovy.
This was reported by Kommersant with reference to the joint press service of the regional courts.
In addition to the diploma, orders to enroll a policeman in the Krasnodar Law Institute of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, to pass state exams, to qualify as a “lawyer” and to issue a diploma with honors were recognized as illegal. The court ordered Yalovoy to transfer the diploma to the university for destruction.
In September 2021, it was reported that the Investigative Committee of Russia opened a criminal case against Colonel Yalovoy under article 327 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (“Acquisition of a knowingly forged official document”). According to the investigation, in 2000 he entered the Chursin Stavropol University, but was soon expelled for absenteeism. He acquired a fake academic certificate of his studies from 1998 to 2000 in the specialty “Jurisprudence” and submitted the document to the Krasnodar Law Institute of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs. He was enrolled in the sixth year, and in the same year he received a diploma of higher legal education.
