Parliament speaker Daudov threatened wanted head of Chechen branch of Sberbank
Speaker of the Chechen Parliament promised the banker problems in case of refusal to pay.
Authorities of the Republic extorted 30 million rubles ($508.730) from wanted Said-Magomed Dzhabrailov, the head of the Sberbank in Chechnya. In particular, the money from Dzhabrailov was demanded by Speaker of the Chechen Parliament Magomed Daudov. He threatened Dzhabrailov that in case of refusal of payments, the authorities of the Republic initiate a criminal case on suspicion "of aiding militants".
According to sources of Kavkaz.Realia newspaper, Dzhabrailov and Daudov met in mid-June in the business center on the 4th floor of Grozny-City in the office of First Deputy Prime Minister of the region Yakub Zakriev. Sources say that this conversation was also attended by Deputy Interior Minister in Chechnya Apti Alaudinov and Chechen Attorney General Sharpudi Abdul-Kadyrov.
Meanwhile, Dzhabrailov refused to pay 30 million rubles, after which he went on vacation. Immediately after his departure from Chechnya, he was declared federally wanted on charges of creating a criminal scheme for cashing money. According to the investigation, the banker created 12 one-day companies "for the purpose of illegally cashing money through the Chechen branch of Sberbank of Russia." According to investigators, Dzhabrailov managed to cash out about 1 billion rubles ($16.9m).
At the moment neither officials of Chechnya nor representatives of Sberbank have commented this information.
