Two Russian prosecutors suspected of protecting underground casinos have been put on the federal wanted list, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported on Thursday.

Two Russian prosecutors suspected of protecting underground casinos have been put on the federal wanted list, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported on Thursday.

Moscow Region prosecutor Alexander Mokhov, his deputy Alexander Ignatenko, legal proceedings chief Dmitry Urumov and two city prosecutors were fired in late April for breaching an oath of office by reportedly hushing up the illegal gambling operations.

Ignatenko and Eduard Kaplun, a former city prosecutor of Klin in the Moscow Region, have been put on the federal wanted list, investigators said during court proceedings on the case on Thursday.

Russian Investigation Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin confirmed the information without giving any further details.

In a crackdown in February, illegal casino owner Ivan Nazarov, his assistants, and three policemen who guarded the illegal business were accused of fraud and are in police custody until August 15 during investigations. The case has sparked a high-profile conflict between the Investigative Committee and the Prosecutor General's Office.
