Switzerland removed attachment from accounts of Bank of Moscow former president Andrey Borodin
Earlier, the Ministry of Internal Affairs reported on the accomplishment of the investigation of the criminal case against former bank executives.
The Swiss Prosecutor's Office decided to remove an attachment from the accounts of Bank of Moscow former president Andrey Borodin, the SRF television channel reported. According to it, the supervisory authority found Russia incapable of guaranteeing a fair trial, and therefore allowed Mr. Borodin to freely dispose of his 300 million francs (€260 million).
In May, the Ministry of Internal Affairs reported on the accomplishment of the investigation into the criminal case against former leaders of Bank of Moscow Andrey Borodin and Dmitry Akulinin. They are accused of embezzling 150 billion rubles ($2.5bn) from a financial institution. As reported by Kommersant's sources, the court will consider the case in absentia, because Mr. Borodin and Mr. Akulinin live in the UK.
The court believes that Anzhela Maria Tsapok could have made the money to buy the house and the expensive car by legal means, since she owned a firm. The court still refused to lift the attachment from her 6 million dollars.
