In Master-Bank's case there were found procedural violations
The supervisory agency returned to investigators an indictment in the case of withdrawal more than 20 billion rubles from the bank.
Due to a number of procedural mistakes the Prosecutor General's Office did not approve the indictment. Now, the investigation will be necessary to eliminate all shortcomings until 16 September. The main defendant in the case is the former Head of one of the bank's client departments Evgeny Rogachev. According to Kommersant, he was charged with an article Illegal Banking Activity (part 2 of Art. 172 of the Criminal Code). He has admitted his guilt, but said that the only ran errands.
Rogachev is the defendant in two criminal cases. In 2012, it began the investigation of illicit cash withdrawal with the assistance of 13 other officials of Zolostbank. The hearing of the case began in the Khamovniki District Court in Moscow in June. According to investigators, partners in crime, with the help of law firms they controlled over 3 years, were taken out of Master-Bank more than 30 billion rubles.
In the second criminal case, in addition to Rogachev, defendants are the leading management specialist with big business of Master-Bank Igor Babichev, a specialist of the bank Andrey Orlov and eight others that are not related to the credit institution. This group cashed 20 billion rubles. Thus, only through the Master-Bank it was washed 50 billion rubles.
However, the main role in cashing did play not Rogachev, as indicated by the witnesses, but the Head of the correspondent relations of Master-Bank and the closest aide of the bank's ex-owner Boris Bulochnikov Tatiana Novikova. Previously, she was placed under house arrest, where she spent about a year, but after the change of the investigator, the case against her was terminated. Rogachev believed that for Novikova can be stand quite influential forces. Since being a "second person at the bank, she obviously knew all the shady bank clients and those, who covered illegal operation" and that "were not employees of the Interior Ministry."
In addition, in this case the former owner of the bank Boris Bulochnik is not the defendant. The case was opened under another article - Deliberate Bankruptcy (Article 196 of the Criminal Code). According to investigators, posing deliberately bad loans, he brought from the bank more than 60 billion rubles, which eventually led to the bankruptcy of a financial institution. Now Bulochnik is on the international wanted list.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
