MOSCOW, November 1 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow accounted for one quarter of all illegal aliens deported from the country, chief city bailiff Alexander Stebakov said in an interview to Itar-Tass on Thursday.
Earlier this year, the Interior Ministry passed the deportation function to the Federal Bailiff Service /FSSP/, which set up a special department to handle it.
In the first nine months of this year, Moscow deported 2,544 people, including 38 children /by city courts' rulings - eds Itar-Tass/. Another 387 persons are to be deported shortly, Stebakov said.
"The procedure has worked from the first day without fault," according to the bailiff, "but we also help our colleagues from other regions - they send the deportees to Moscow and we ensure their transportation to their homeland."
Chief Russian bailiff Artur Parfenchikov earlier said bailiffs across the country had executed the court’s rulings to deport 11,000 illegal aliens in the first nine months of 2012.
