Corruption crimes committed only in Aktobe region of Kazakhstan over the past two years have caused damage to the state in the amount of over $2.1 million.
According to the Anti-Corruption Agency, only due to theft, the region’s budget is losing about $650 000 annually. The Department also noted that most often corruption crimes are committed in the field of construction and housing, as well as communal services. However, anti-corruption fighters are not always able to compensate for the damage caused, because the share of compensation does not exceed 70% of the total amount of damage, because the guilty companies, as a rule, declare themselves bankrupt.
At the same time, the Anti-Corruption Agency is not always able to establish the exact amount of damage and guilt of criminals, and bring the perpetrators to justice.
