Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law to collect money from the bank accounts of officials in the event that the amount of receipts exceeds income for three years. On Sunday, March 6, reports RIA Novosti.
According to this law, the bank accounts of civil servants, as well as members of their families, including minor children, will be checked by the prosecutor’s office. If it turns out that the proceeds from them exceed the total income of the official and his relatives for three years by more than 10,000 rubles, a lawsuit will be filed with the court for the forced withdrawal of these funds to the budget.
In order not to lose money, the official will have to prove the legality of their appearance on the account. During the verification of data, prosecutors will be able to talk with the official himself, as well as send requests to government agencies, banks, credit organizations and departments responsible for registering real estate.
Earlier it was reported that Putin signed a law on tougher punishment for pedophiles and their accomplices.
