MOSCOW, December 13 (Itar-Tass) — Kremlin chief of staff Sergei Naryshkin said 1,600 officials lost their jobs in six months for unauthentic income declarations. He was speaking at a conference over perfecting state control in Russia on Tuesday.
He reminded that special attention had been paid to the development of anti-corruption legislation. "Important international documents have been ratified, and bills have been approved that remove many legal loopholes for venal officials," Naryshkin said.
Other measures of the National Anticorruption Strategy are implemented systemically and consistently; officials have been declaring their incomes and the incomes of their families for several years, as well as the main expenditure to purchase real estate, immovable property and securities," he went on to say.
"Whereas official websites placed information on more than 153,000 civil servants in 2010, this figure increased to over 267,000 in 2011," Naryshkin said.
"All the income declarations are carefully checked, while the officials who conceal or distort the data on income and property, lose their jobs. After checks in the first six months of this year, 1,611 municipal and federal officials were relieved of their duties," the Kremlin chief of staff noted.
On December 5, the Russian president signed a federal law envisioning rotation of civil servants. "This will provide for decreasing corruption risks in executive bodies of all levels," he underlined.
