Prosecutors of all levels strive to identify and suppress the most significant, socially dangerous corruption acts, as evidenced by more than threefold increase in the number of people dismissed due to loss of trust over the past three years (from 383 in 2016 to 1303 in 2018).
For the first half of the year 2019, as a result of prosecutorial interventions, 469 officials were dismissed on this basis.
The grounds for applying this most severe type of disciplinary sanction are gross corruption offenses, which include concealing information on income, expenses, property and property related obligations, failure to take measures to resolve a conflict of interest, violation of an anti-corruption ban on exercising entrepreneurial activity.
For example, the prosecution authorities of the Sverdlovsk region found that the head of the department of social policy and information, as well as the deputy head of the administration of the municipality, in violation of the established procedure, independently, without holding meetings of the relevant commissions, decided to provide material assistance to their relatives at the expense of budget funds. After the intervention of the prosecutor's office, these officials were dismissed for failure to comply with the requirements of anti-corruption legislation in connection with the loss of trust.
The prosecutor's office of the Voronezh region revealed that measures were not taken to resolve a conflict of interest by the inspector of Licensing and Permitting Department in the city of Voronezh and at high security facilities of the regional department of the Russian Guard. She has repeatedly conducted checks against a commercial organization whose director is her spouse. The prosecutor submitted an application to the head of the regional department of the Russian Guard, upon consideration of which the inspector was dismissed from service due to the loss of trust.
The register of persons dismissed in connection with the loss of trust for corruption related offenses is public and can be found on the official website at: http://gossluzhba.gov.ru/reestr.
