Chief investigator says his agency confiscated over $310M from corruption cases

Quote:
The head of Russia’s Investigative Committee said that in 2016, property worth 18 billion rubles ($310 million at the current exchange rate) was confiscated by the committee from corruption cases.
Speaking at the Expanded Collegium of the Investigative Committee on the results of 2016, the chairman, Aleksandr Bastrykin, said that the confiscated property covered almost 80 percent of the total damages that corruption crimes caused to the Russian economy. Bastrykin also said that about 2.7 billion rubles in damages was found and compensated to the state during the investigation of various corruption crimes in 2016.

The specific weight of the compensated property has risen to 35 percent, or 45 billion rubles in real figures. Of course, this has not fully covered the damages from corruption and economic crimes, but the dynamic is positive, at least,” he said.


However, I am confident that the real losses were much larger. We understand that most of the stolen property is being transferred abroad,” the investigator noted, adding that law enforcement officials were “undertaking measures in this direction.”


Bastrykin also told his colleagues that they should not see the main objective of their work as putting convicts behind bars. “We don’t have the task to boost the country’s prison population to the maximum. What is important for us is compensation of damages. And I think that it is great when people who have committed crimes come to the Investigative Committee for explanations, and the first thing they do is try to compensate the damages.”

Somehow I very much doubt his 80% figure.
