MOSCOW, February 16 - RAPSI. Bailiffs initiated more criminal cases in 2011 than in 2010, the Federal Bailiff Service told journalists on Thursday.

The number of administrative cases opened by bailiffs also rose 30.6 percent compared to 2009.
The service said almost 400 bailiffs were brought to the criminal liability official crimes. Most of the crimes committed were uncovered upon the request and with the support of the service, which indicates its effective anti-corruption activities, the service said.
