Russian lawyer follows in Julian Assange’s footsteps

PanARMENIAN.Net - Blogger and activist, lawyer Alexei Navalny has launched a web site to track corruption in government tenders.

The site, designed to resemble a government web site, is called RosPil in a reference to the Russian slang word for the embezzlement of state funds, “raspil” (literally “sawing”). It is operating in test mode at http://rospil.info/ but plans to move to Rospil.net later.

The website is tracking online government tenders for proposals that set unrealistic terms or goals, a possible indication of rigged deals, The Moscow Times reported.
