MOSCOW, January 27 - RAPSI. A team of Russian investigators will head to Poland to interrogate former Moscow Region prosecutor Alexander Ignatenko in the notorious "casino case," Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI/rapsinews.com) on Friday.

Earlier, Ignatenko was placed on an international wanted list and detained in Poland.

Uncovered several months ago, the high-profile Moscow Region illegal casino scandal incited a public uproar. Businessman Ivan Nazarov allegedly operated illegal casinos in 15 towns across the region. According to law enforcement authorities, several high-ranking officials of prosecutor's offices and the Interior Ministry were involved in the casino operation, which generated between $5 million and $10 million in revenue monthly.
