MOSCOW, February 3 (Itar-Tass) —— In 2011 about 350 gambling facilities were closed down in Moscow, Moscow’s Prosecutor Sergei Kudeneyev said on Friday.
“Over the year, jointly with the police we carried out about 500 inspections, where we found about 350 illegal gambling facilities, which were closed down,” he said. “We opened 46 criminal cases, and six are in courts already; 185 individuals were brought to administrative responsibility for illegal gambling activities, and over 5,500 units of gambling equipment were confiscated.”
At the same time, Kudeneyev said that the authorities had to close a gambling club in western Moscow three times.
“Since August of last year, we closed f a gambling club on Vernadskogo Avenue three times,” he said. “A criminal case was opened in September, and even after that the club continued working; and only after the third time we managed to close it for good.”
Over the course of three ‘closures,’ the police confiscated 142 slot machines, he said.
He commented on the situation calling it unacceptable and called for stricter measures to be implemented when dealing with the illegal gambling.
