MOSCOW, February 7 - RAPSI. The losses resulting from corruption crimes exposed in Moscow last year exceeded 1.15 billion rubles ($38.4 million), head of the Investigative Committee's Moscow department Vadim Yakovenko said on Thursday.

"The losses over the corruption crimes we investigated exceeded 1.15 billion rubles. Nearly 250 million rubles ($8.3 million) have been recovered thanks to the efforts of law enforcers at the pre-trial investigation stage," he said.

Yakovenko noted that 283 corruption cases, including 83 bribery cases, were forwarded to the courts last year.

"Many of these were high-profile cases. We are ready to call anyone who violates the law to account, irrespective of their official status," Yakovenko said.

He added that over the past two years the Moscow law enforcement officers redeemed over 5.9 billion rubles ($197 million) in budget money as part of tax crime investigations.
