MOSCOW, February 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Prosecutors exposed more than 900 facts of illegal gambling in the Russian capital last year, seizing 26,000 units of gambling equipment, Moscow prosecutor Sergei Kudeneyev said on Wednesday.
"The struggle against illegal gambling remains an acute task for the city. Law-enforcement bodies exposed more than 900 facts of illegal gambling in 2013, a two-fold increase year-on-year," Kudeneyev said.
According to the prosecutor, many gambling parlors were repeatedly shut down, but every time they resumed operation the next day, despite the fact that the authorities confiscated gambling equipment and imposed administrative penalties on the culprits.
Kudeneyev said the sluggish work by police in this sphere resulted in citizens and unauthorized organizations' beginning to take measures of their own to eradicate gambling dens. This has a negative impact and involves physical violence, destruction of property and riots, he said.
