Ex-head of Tatfondbank charged
Robert Musin is charged with swindling on an especially large scale.
Former Chairman of Tatfondbank’s board of directors Robert Musin and three more defendants in the case of swindling have been charged, TASS reports citing the press service of the Investigative Committee of Russia.
“Four defendants – Musin, Semyonov, Mochalov, and Nasyrov – have been charged under Swindling Committed on an Especially Large Scale,” the agency representatives reported, noting that the remaining defendants were still considered suspects.
Let us recall that the chairman of Tatfondbank PJSC’s board of directors was arrested on March 4, 2017, the day after the Central Bank revoked the license from Tatfondbank for the credit institution’s failure to comply with the federal laws. According to the Central Bank, Tatfondbank “had not adequately assessed the risks” with unsatisfactory asset quality, which led to a complete loss of equity.
Initially, Robert Musin was charged with a swindling on an especially large scale with a loan from the Bank of Russia at 3.1 billion rubles ($54.4 million), and then with the withdrawal of property for 310 million rubles ($5.4 million) more.
The businessman stated that he had given the money to the Head of the Main Directorate of Interdepartmental Cooperation and Internal Security of the Investigative Committee of Russia (ICR) for "advancing the case" on the watch stolen from him by ICR officers.
