MOSCOW, September 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Prosecutor General’s Office has initiated probes into activity of the tour industry after a series of bankruptcies among travel companies.
“The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office ordered prosecutors to secure enforcement of the laws on tourism activity and consumer rights protection,” the spokeswoman for the Prosecutor General’s Office told ITAR-TASS on Thursday.
“Over the past four years, 35 major travel companies have suspended their operations upon failing to fulfil their liabilities under the agreements concluded with customers,” Marina Gridneva said.
Along with that, in July-August criminal cases were opened in Moscow and St. Petersburg against staff of ten travel companies on charges of fraud.
As “their actions affected tens thousands of people who were unable to leave on holiday and to come back home on time,” she said.
