MOSCOW, August 30 - RAPSI. First Deputy Prosecutor Alexander Buksman admitted that the prosecutors office, whose employees were recently involved in a gambling scandal in the Moscow Region, has problems. But he stressed that not a single Russian structure can boast having made a full victory over corruption.
"There is not a single structure where no employees are taking bribes," he said. "The prosecutors office is not an exception. We do our best to fight it. What happened in the Moscow Region Prosecutors Office is a big omission."
He said the prosecutors office did not support the indictment in the gambling case, since, according to the office, it violated the rights of the parties to the proceedings. The Investigative Committee and the Federal Security Service announced that they have revealed a large network of underground casinos in the Moscow Region, which was sheltered by local law enforcement officers. A number of former employees of the prosecutors office and law enforcement bodies were detained in the criminal case.
