GORKI, March 13 (Itar-Tass) —— Dismissal, property impoundment or prosecution shall be the punishment for expenditures of public officers exceeding their incomes, Presidential Aide – Presidential State and Legal Department Head Larisa Brycheva said on Tuesday.
“There will be no fines,” she said. If a public officer fails to prove that the expensive buy is legal, “he will be dismissed and his property will be impounded by court,” she said.
Brycheva recalled the Soviet period when the government impounded cars of citizens engaged in private taxi service.
She also said that prosecution of corrupt public officers was also possible.
