GORKI, September 19 (Itar-Tass) — President Dmitry Medvedev ordered Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika to take the cases of gross violations in the housing and public utilities sector under special control.
"These are outrageous actions, and should be classified accordingly by the Investigative Committee, the Prosecutor General’s Office and later by courts, if there are reasons for opening criminal proceedings," Medvedev said at a meeting with Chaika on Monday.
"I'd like you to take it under special control," he added.
Chaika informed Medvedev that prosecutors had exposed 13,000 violations in the housing and public utilities sector in the past six months. Prosecutors gathered evidence for opening criminal cases over 500 offenses.
