Witnesses in Renova case pointed to cashing through publicly owned banks
Investigators conducted searches in the offices of the company and interrogated witnesses, who told about money's origin for multimillion bribes.
The Investigative Committee and the FSB carried out searches in the offices of T Plus company (part of the Renova group of companies), as well as interrogations of witnesses, on the basis of which new criminal cases could be opened. As Kommersant reports referring to the sources, large-scale searches are being carried out in Moscow, the Moscow Region, Perm and other cities in connection with the new circumstances in the criminal case of managing director of Renova Evgeny Olkhovik and head of T Plus Boris Vainzikher. The siloviki had to open some safes by the Bulgarians, although, according to the representatives of Renova, they did not interfere with the activities of the investigators, and the company worked in the regular mode.
At the same time, witnesses were invited to the ICR in this case. Some of them confessed to illegal banking transactions, pointing to a number of individuals from the largest Russian banks with state participation, which could be related to the organization of clandestine transactions. In the near future, new criminal cases under Illegal Banking Activities (Article 172 of the Criminal Code) and Tax Evasion (Article 199 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) may be opened.
Let us remind you that Olkhovik and Vainzikher were detained on suspicion of giving bribes to the ex-leadership of the Republic in September 2016. Now the defendants of the case are in custody.
Now the investigators have to find out the schemes of money cashing in order to pay bribes. In addition, based on the results of past searches in companies affiliated with Renova and T Plus, the materials found to be supposed to be minimized.
It should be noted that all criminal cases related to the top managers of Renova are being investigated separately.
