MOSCOW, February 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika criticized the efforts toward compensating the damage uncovered during the investigation into crimes in the housing and public utilities sector.
"Crime-related damage in this sector exceeds 34 billion rubles, yet a mere 866 million rubles were recovered at the stage of investigation, which only makes 2.5%," the prosecutor said at the Government Hour session at the State Duma lower house of the Russian parliament on Wednesday.
Compensation of damage at the stage of investigation is done rarely, he summed up.
According to Chaika, many cases opened back in 2009-2011 are yet waiting for decisions. Furthermore, no probes have been carried out into many cases after the opening of proceedings on the strength of prosecutors' checks.
These cases are mostly handled by Interior Ministry investigators, the prosecutor general reminded.
