Ex-head of Sovetsky Bank board of directors, who is person of interest in case of banker Antonov, placed on wanted list
Stanislav Mitrushin is charged with fraud.
Stanislav Mitrushin, the son of the owner of Sovetsky Bank, who previously held the post of the head of the board of directors of this credit organization, was placed on the federal wanted list. This is reported by RBC with reference to sources.
As the publication writes, the businessman is suspected of committing a crime provided for by part 4 of Art. 159 (fraud on an especially large scale). “Soon, Mitrushin can be placed on the international wanted list as well,” said the source.
The Tverskoy Court of Moscow confirmed the publication the fact of Mitrushin’s arrest in absentia at the request of the investigative department of the Russian MIA.
In addition, the interlocutor specified that Mitrushin also appeared in another case – of the founder of Konvers Group, Vladimir Antonov. It is assumed that both of them acted in the same group: Mitrushin Jr. was in charge of the bank and could give instructions on the allocation of funds, the investigators think.
It is noteworthy that the scheme on selling a portfolio of securities that did not have real value to the bank worked not only with the Sovetsky. According to the sources of the portal, the defendants of Antonov's case managed to sell them in at least ten banks.
It is to be recalled that Antonov himself is now in custody. The businessman, the ex-owner of the British football club Portsmouth, one of the founders of the large financial association Konvers Group, is not officially connected with Sovetsky Bank. The credit organization came under sanation in October 2015. This decision was made in connection with the identification of signs of the bank's unsustainable financial situation, which threaten the interests of its creditors, the Central Bank specified.
According to the investigation, the businessman pulled off a theft of 150 million rubles () from the bank "Soviet". As reported by "Criminal Russia" source, in the future Vladimir Antonov may be accused of creating an FSO (Article 210 of the Criminal Code).
