TALLINN 's Interior Minister Kalle Laanet decided on Monday not to accept the resignation of police chief Robert Antropov after the latter was criticized for using his police vehicle for personal use.

Laanet did say, however, that Antropov would be stripped of his 9,500 kroon (60 euros) monthly bonus for at least half a year and would not be able to have a summer holiday.

Laanet said that Antropov had hurt the public's sense of justice when he gave his parents a ride in a police jeep to the Saaremaa Island.

Last week Antropov had submitted his resignation less, saying he wanted to uphold the police's reputation.
