MOSCOW, June 2 (RAPSI) - Assets of corrupt officials must be seized not only when they are convicted and sentenced but even when cases against corrupt officials are dropped because the statute of limitations expire or such officials fall under amnesty, chairman of Russia's Supreme Court, Vyacheslav Lebedev, said on Tuesday at a session of Council of Judges.

Officials who are convicted of taking or giving bribes must be banned from holding public office for at least six years, according to Lebedev.
