Putin signed a decree on the confiscation of illegal funds of officials
It is being reported in Russian media that Putin signed a law to seize money from the bank accounts of officials in the event that the amount of receipts exceeds income for three years according to RIA Novosti.
According to this new 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 put into the state budget.
Officials will have to prove the legality of any extra money in their account in order to keep it. 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.
Interesting how Putin decides to distract with these “anti-corruption” measures when he is the biggest thief of Russian funds and resources, followed by people in his inner circle and party. However, this law will allow Putin to keep officials on a tight leash for fear of prosecution and loss of money should they choose to speak out against the Kremlin’s war crimes.
Putin thinks of everything except the value of human lives.
