MOSCOW, November 28 (Itar-Tass) — Military investigators are running four pre-investigation checks into the facts of sale of military property, head of the Main Military Investigation Department /GVSU/ of the Investigation Committee Alexander Sorochkin said on Wednesday.
"The Oboronservis case comprises seven criminal cases, but we're running four more pre-investigation checks related to the sale of the so-called non-core assets where we see signs of crimes," he said.
He did not rule out that new criminal cases were likely.
Military investigators receive information not only from law-enforcement bodies or inspectors. "Citizens report facts, too; we're checking them, and the appropriate procedural decisions will be made," he underlined.
Sorochkin acknowledged a "considerably possibility that the case will expand." Earlier on Wednesday, he said the total sum of estimated damage in the Oboronservis case had exceeded four billion roubles.
