Former owner of Yugra bank Khotin placed under house arrest
The entrepreneur was forbidden from leaving the apartment at night.
Moscow’s Basmanny Court placed the former main owner of the Yugra bank, Alexey Khotin, under house arrest in an apartment on Polyanka Street, which he was forbidden to leave at night, Interfax reports. Khotin was also banned from using the Internet, telephone, mail and talking to people who are not his relatives, investigators or lawyers.
As the ICR reported earlier, Khotin was detained as part of an investigation into the theft of 7.5 billion rubles ($ 117,2 million) from Yugra. Six more suspects, whose identities are still unknown, are persons of interest in the case.
Forbes included Khotin in the list of 200 richest businessmen of Russia, and before Yugra’s license was revoked it belonged to the TOP-30 of Russian banks in terms of assets.
