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.
Billionaire Viktor Vekselberg has repaid loans in the amount of $1 billion taken from the Western banks. Earlier, his Renova Group had received state support from Promsvyazbank. Renova representatives say they have repaid the loan with the company’s own funds.
Federation Council member Vadim Nikolaev whose son had gotten into a fight strongly suggested that the other kids and their parents dropped beating charges, making it clear that he had already been to prosecutors and the ICR and “gotten it all dealt with.”
The businessman agreed to exchange the assets of Liwet Holding, through which Vekselberg’s company owned the shares of high-tech European concerns, for the assets of his partners Evgeny Olkhovik and Vladimir Kremer.
