MOSCOW, December 28 (Itar-Tass) — Bailiffs have forced payment of only less than 4 percent of the fines imposed by courts for bribe taking, the Federal Service of Bailiffs of Russia reported on Friday.
In the 9 months of this year, bailiffs had 1,187 cases to force payment of fines imposed for corruption, totaling 1,2 billion rbls.
Though a fourth of the court rulings were fulfilled, only 44 million roubles were transferred to the state budget.
Bailiffs must appeal to a court to change the penalty if a fine is not paid within the set period. It was changed in 21 cases.
In October, a court changed the penalty for former head of a district in Tatarstan, who was among the first persons fined millions for a bribe (he was fined 300 mln rbls), sentencing him to four years' imprisonment.
Besides, bailiffs forced payment of fines imposed for administrative offences of a corruption character (often imposed on persons in whose favour bribes were given). Out of the imposed 10.7 mln, 3.3 mln were paid.
Fines many times more than a taken bribe are imposed in Russia to fight corruption.
