Investigators of the Presnensky police department opened a criminal investigation into the theft of 1 million rubles ($17.000) in Peresvet bank. The criminal case was initiated under Article 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Swindling).
According to the investigation, the bank took a large loan in 2012-2013. The debtors decided not to bone up.
"Unknown people from Peresvet bank leadership have concluded a number of loan agreements with the bank for 1 million rubles," a source from the Interior Ministry said. After that, the money was transferred to the company Stroy-Prestige.
Pre-investigation checks showed that the debtors were not going to bone up money to the bank. It was spent. A representative of the Deposit Insurance Agency complained applied to the police upon possible fraud.
At the moment, Peresvet bank is undergoing a procedure of financial rehabilitation. In 2016, a hole in the capital of a financial institution was estimated at 103.6 billion rubles ($1.7bn). For rehabilitation, 66.7 billion rubles were allocated.
One of the main shareholders of Peresvet bank is the Russian Orthodox Church, but in June of this year it waived the right to its shares. The reason for this was the decrease of its share in the capital of the bank below 20% of the authorized capital.
