At initiative of Sberbank. Details of criminal case against Dmitry Mazurov become known
Criminal case against a former owner of Antipinsky oil refinery plant Dmitry Mazurov was initiated following the bank’s report.
Criminal case against a chairman of board of management of New Stream and a former owner of Antipinsky oil refinery plant Dmitry Mazurov was initiated after lawyers of Sberbank had reported to the police, reports the media office of the credit organization.
In particular, the bank determined “multiple instances of illegal activity” committed by Mazurov and a former CEO of Antipinsky oil refinery plant Gennady Lisovichenko. The organization’s lawyers considered it “swindling on an especially large scale committed by an organized group.”
In particular, Antipinsky oil refinery plant, according to Sberbank, deceived them as to the company’s financial condition, having concealed cash before third parties related to vouchers provided by the plant.
Besides that, employees of Sberbank turned attention to a few bargains of the company with the affiliated parties and intermediaries under non-market conditions - including those related to export contracts. Sberbank believes that Mazurov and Lisovichenko had received their profit that way and siphoned off the money abroad.
As a result, the senior executives’ actions led the company to full suspension in April, 2019. Sberbank does not indicate the amount of the damage. Representative of New Stream told Vedomosti that Mazurov is suspected of embezzlement of $600 million.
On July 16, Moscow’s Tverskoy court will consider the measure of restraint as to Mazurov. The businessman is suspected of swindling on an especially large scale - item 4 of article 159 of the Criminal Code. He will face up 10 years behind bars, the court’s media office reported.
