    MOSCOW, February 10 (RIA Novosti) - About ten criminal cases of corrupt Russian officials have been submitted to court, Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin said at a CIS conference on money laundering and terrorism financing.

    According to Kudrin, the Russian Committee for Financial Monitoring has exposed some money laundering schemes.

    "I know that such schemes have been exposed and the involved officials identified," said Kudrin.

    "A number of such cases are now in court, and court hearings will give a considerable boost to this process [solution of money laundering cases]," said Kudrin.

    In his words, "lawyers often come across such things for the first time." "I think that careful arrangements for the hearings and substantiation of court arguments will give an impulse to the efforts in this area," said Kudrin.
