Yesterday in Zamoskvoretsky regional court, two representatives of the Prosecutor’s office announced the indictment. From this it follows that the investigation of this criminal case began in December of 2015. After contacting law enforcement representatives of the Central Bank, reported the massive theft of depositors ‘ funds, the interior Ministry opened a criminal case under part 4 of article 159 of the criminal code (fraud in especially large size), which was subsequently transferred to the TFR.
