Corruption damage was amounted to more than $2 million in one of the regions of Kazakhstan

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.
