Court granted four more claims of Tatfondbank's depositors
In total, the Prosecutor's Office appealed to the courts of the region with more than 200 lawsuits in the interests of the clients affected by the financial institution.
The Vakhitovsky District Court granted the claims of prosecutors of the Aviastroitelny and Moskovsky Districts of Kazan and Chistopol City Prosecutor who spoke on behalf of four clients of Tatfondbank – two pensioners and two disabled people.
Earlier, it was reported that the court in Kazan satisfied suits of prosecutors in the interests of four depositors Tatfondbank who are residents of the city.
In addition, the court arrested the former head of Tatfondbank Robert Musin. He is charged with a particularly large fraud (Art. 159 of the Criminal Code) – embezzlement through Tatfondbank from the Central Bank 3.1 billion rubles in the form of a loan. As part of the investigation of the fraud case, the shareholder of Tatfondbank and CEO of Novaya Neftekhimiya LLC Ramil Safin, as well as the head of the Royal Time Group, Elena Leushina, were detained. The scandal resulted in Prime Minister of Tatarstan Ildar Khalikov leaving his office.The Central Bank revoked Tatfondbank’s license on March 3, 2017. According to the Central Bank, the ‘hole’ in the balance sheet of the bank as of February 1, 2017 was about 96.7 billion rubles, before the introduction of the temporary administration, its size was estimated at 43 billion rubles.
The story with the arrest of Igor Vainshtok, creator of famous bifidok, in absentia and his escape is pretty confusing. The company founded by him still remains the largest probiotics producer in Russia and generates multimillion profits – however, somehow it was declared bankrupt. An international warrant has been issued against Vainshtok for non-payment of salaries – while the businessman calls his prosecution an element of the raiding takeover of his company that was already recognized a raidership victim in the past. Concurrently, employees of Partner Joint Stock Company created by Vainshtok claim that he has stolen not only millions of rubles from the base bank of Roscosmos – but, more importantly, the bifidok inventorship. So, whom has Vainshtok fled from?
According to the head of the state-owned company, the Russian business “rebuilt the country,” “restored the collapsed Soviet enterprises,” “returned the salary to the people,” “filled the budget with money.”
