Ex-co-owner of Antalbank declared internationally wanted
Mikhail Yanchuk is accused of three episodes of fraud and the creation of a criminal community.
The former co-owner of Antalbank, Mikhail Yanchuk, is put on the international wanted list by the Interpol. This was reported by the press service of the Prosecutor General's Office on Thursday, April 27.
"Mikhail Yanchuk was put on the international wanted list for the purpose of arrest and extradition for criminal prosecution for committing criminal acts in the territory of the Russian Federation," the press service of the Ministry reported.
Earlier, the ICR charged co-owners of Antalbank with Creating a Criminal Community (part 3 of Article 210 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). Earlier, president of the credit organization Magomed Mukhiev and shareholder Mikhail Yanchuk were accused of especially large scale Swindling (part 4, Article 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). According to investigators, bankers stole about 30 billion rubles ($526m) of depositors' funds.
At the moment, Mukhiev is in jail, and Yanchuk is hiding from the investigation. Shortly before the accusations of creating an OCC, the investigators found a new episode of large-scale fraud amount - according to the investigation, the banker did not pay for the share in acquired in 2012.
“Enthrone Rostik”. Ex-Mayor of Yalta, acquitted as per request of Prosecutor General’s Office, to return to power?
The Yalta City Court detained notorious developer Yuri Dubrovitsky who has defrauded more than 100 construction co-investors. The CrimeRussia found out that, in the past, Dubrovitsky was charged with swindling and illegal construction in Sochi – but escaped punishment and launched his construction business in Crimea with the support of Sergei Aksenov, Head and Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, and Andrei Rostenko, Ex-Mayor of Yalta. The criminal case against Rostenko was closed in December 2018 – Viktor Grin', Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, had personally interceded for him. By a weird coincidence, a day before the examination of the cassation appeal in the Moscow City Court, the State Council of Crimea has donated Russia Sanatorium and Resort Complex to the Prosecutor General's Office. The deluxe property 22.8 thousand square meters in size is worth 428.1 million rubles ($6.5 million); its closed territory occupies 14.5 ha of land; and it has a private access to the sea. It became known that Rostenko does not make a secret out of his ambitions to become the Yalta Mayor again. The CrimeRussia reviewed the most recent scandals involving ‘unsinkable' Rostik.
