UrBC, Yekaterinburg, January 25, 2015. The number of claims locals place with Sverdlovsk Region’s public prosecution authorities rose by 14.5% last year; every one in five such claims was found to be well grounded, the authorities report.

‘Over 60,000 claims were processed last year; both the overall number of claims and that of resolved claims went up by 8%, as did the number of prosecution proceedings resulting from sustained claims. More than 30,000 people got professional legal advice through personal appointments with the public prosecution authorities officials. Also, the number of follow-up enquiries decreased by 5.1% due to careful consideration of first-time inquires and detailed answers to these,’ the authorities say.

Most of the sustained claims had to do with violations of the labor and housing codes as well as minors’ rights.
