    Six criminal cases have been opened on fraud charges in Russia’s Volga Republic of Udmurtia where salaries were paid to "ghost" schoolteachers, the Prosecutor’s Office said on Wednesday.

    IZHEVSK, April 3 (RIA Novosti) - Six criminal cases have been opened on fraud charges in Russia’s Volga Republic of Udmurtia where salaries were paid to "ghost" schoolteachers, the Prosecutor’s Office said on Wednesday.

    Officials at a school in the city of Izhevsk were found to have tampered with official records to create "ghost" teachers, and then wired money to their accounts, from which they later withdrew it, prosecutors said.

    The fraud started in 2008 and continued until recently.

    The Prosecutor’s Office did not say how much money had been stolen during that time.
