He noted that the statistics on corruption offenses quoted by him covered the period between July 2015 and July 2016. He said that 950 officials who had been brought to trial for corruption included three officials of the highest rank.
"950 people related to government funding were brought to trial. Everyone will say that it's quite an achievement because the figure of 950 means three persons daily before one starts analyzing how the people have been punished exactly or whether they have been dismissed... For example: 300 persons were fined, 120 - acquitted by the court, 330 - freed from punishment. Hard evidence collected against 120 persons while only 34 of them have already been convicted," Shalaiskyi stressed.
