Zurich prosecutors attach Telman Ismailov’s Swiss accounts
Both the Prosecutor's Office and the applicant agree that he used assets and accounts to launder money received as a result of fraud in Russia.
Zurich Prosecutor’s Office has seized Swiss accounts of Telman Ismailov, the former owner of the Cherkizovsky market, to pay off billions of dollars in debt, Kommersant writes.
The amount deposited in Swiss banks is not revealed. At the same time, the Prosecutor's Office and the applicant agree that he used assets and accounts to launder money received as a result of fraud in Russia.
Telman Ismailov, who moved with his family to Montenegro, was declared bankrupt in Russia. In November 2017, the businessman was charged with organizing two murders, and then he was declared wanted by Interpol. Also, Ismailov was accused of the abduction of singer Abraham Russo in 2004. According to the investigation, the reason for this was the financial conflict.
He is also suspected of fraud associated with the seizure of the property of the debtor, the actual reduction of assets to the detriment of creditors, as well as squandering of assets.
