Republic sportsmen received about 50 million prize money after prosecutor’s office involvement
Yakutia 24 TV channel: The republic sportsmen, who won at 2017 and 2018 sport contests, got their prize money paid after prosecutor’s office involved.
The sportsmen, who took the top places in 2017, got their reward only in 2018. And the ones who won in 2018, did not get it at all.
“The reason of delay was the lack of budgetary funds. The executive authorities of the republic haven’t taken timely measures to financially and socially support the sportsmen and coaches”, says the prosecutor’s office.
The office told that 2018 debt to sportsmen in amount of 31,425 million rubles was repaid to the sportsmen in November 2019. In late December the sportsmen got money for 1019 in amount of 19,5 million rubles.
