Ex-head of Tatfondbank transferred back from hospital to detention facility
Chairman of Tatfondbank's board Robert Musin, arrested in early March 2017, who had been previously hospitalized in connection with the deterioration of health, has been convoyed back to the pre-trial detention.
This is reported to RIA Novosti by Chief Media Operative for the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia in Tatarstan Inga Mazurenko.
According to her, Musin has undergone the necessary medical examination and treatment, his condition has stabilized. After that, the arrestee was returned to the SIZO-2 (pre-trial detention center No. 2) in Kazan, where he had been previously confined.
Let us recall that the former head of Tatfondbank was urgently transferred from the detention unit to the hospital because of health problems on May 9. Robert Musin is a defendant in cases of large-scale swindling and abuse of powers. According to the investigation, in 2016, Tatfondbank's employees obtained a credit of 3 billion rubles (52.5 million dollars) from the Central Bank of Russia, claiming the availability of highly liquid assets. The investigators believe that someone had managed to embezzle the funds, as the money was transferred to the accounts of companies affiliated with Tatfondbank PJSC.
Moreover, Musin is suspected of illegal withdrawal of Urman LLC's collateralized property in the amount of 847 million rubles (14.8 million dollars) in December 2016.
The chairman of Tatfondbank PJSC was arrested on March 4, the following day after the Central Bank revoked Tatfondbank's license for the credit institution's failure to comply with federal laws. The Central Bank stated that Tatfondbank had "inadequately assessed the risks" at unsatisfactory quality of assets, which led to a complete loss of equity.
Former member of the Federation Council believes that this once again points to numerous violations and falsification of evidence during the investigation of his criminal case on charges of bribe-taking in the amount of 27.5 million rubles ($457 thousand).
