The director of the Russian Tax Police speaks about the violations of the law

A considerable number of infringements of the law in the border areas of Russia and Kazakhstan are committed in the sphere of foreign economic activity, stated Director of the Russian Federal Tax Police Service Mikhail Fradkov. He spoke at the conference of the heads of a number of Russian regional Tax Police bodies and representatives of the Kazakh Federal Police Agency which took place in Omsk on Thursday. As was reported on Friday by the press service of the Omsk regional administration, Mikhail Fradkov pointed out that "apart from legal commercial activity, conditions have arisen for forming criminal trans-national groups." These groups, according to Fradkov, are specialising in laundering money, illegally taking out capitals abroad, not returning hard currency receipts and conducting illegal export machinations. The deliveries of products of ferrous and nonferrous metallurgy, timber, oil goods and agricultural products attract the greatest interest of the Russian and Kazakh tax and financial bodies. Mikhail Fradkov said that more than half international inquiries sent by the Russian Federal Tax Police Service to Kazakhstan in 2000 were initiated by the tax police bodies in Russian areas bordering on Kazakhstan. On the other hand, 40 percent of the inquiries from Kazakhstan to Russia concern twelve Russian regions bordering on Kazakhstan.
