Moscow police arrests 2 bankers accused of stealing more than 100 million rubles
Moscow police has put an end to an organized crime group, whose members stole about 100 million rubles, claiming to provide loans.
According to the official representative of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs Irina Volk, the two former top managers of a certain bank were arrested by officers of the General Administration for Economic Security and Combatting the Corruption (GAESCC) and the Moscow police investigators. Former bank executives are suspected of stealing more than 100 million rubles. They carried out their financial schemes under the pretext of providing loans for fictitious organizations.
The police claim that the bankers entered into loan agreements with fake and fictitious companies, and then transferred money to their accounts. After that, they distorted the data in the bank's financial statements, and repeatedly extended deadlines under the loan agreements on terms that were clearly unfavorable for the bank.
The scammers distributed the stolen money between members of the group and spent it for personal needs.
The police informed that the total amount of damages caused to the bank as a result of their criminal activities exceeded 100 million rubles.
Now, a criminal case into fraud has been initiated under para. 4 of art. 159 of the Russian Criminal Code. The detained bankers have been charged with the alleged crime. One of them was taken into custody, the second was placed under house arrest. The investigative authorities continue to clarify all the circumstances of the crime. The criminal investigation goes on.
The court appointed oppositionist Alexey Navalny 20-day arrest immediately after doing another term. During the hearing, he promised to respond to the director of Rosgvardiya after watching his challenge to a duel.
“Such things distract from holidays.” Federal Antimonopoly Service vs. Governor Boris Dubrovsky and his heir
A conflict between the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) and Governor Boris Dubrovsky is escalating in the Chelyabinsk region. The local FAS branch started wondering why most profitable governmental contracts are awarded to companies belonging to miraculously successful businessman Aleksander Dubrovsky. The federal FAS headquarters instituted a case against the Governor. In response, a large-scale smear company targeting the head of the regional FAS branch and involving the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation and law enforcement structures has been launched in the region. However, there are grounds for believing that the recent events in Chelyabinsk are just yet another episode in the ongoing war between the clans of Igor Sechin and Yuri Chaika. Would Boris Dubrovsky and his son fall victims to that confrontation? Or the business of the Governor’s son is going to continue flourishing on budget funds?
In 2015, the members of the organized crime group were acquitted by the Moscow Regional Military Court, however, subsequently, the sentence was revoked by the Supreme Court, and the case was joined with that related to two other members of the gang.
