MOSCOW, November 9 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s Investigation Committee officers searched the offices of several firms belonging to the Transdniestrian leader’s son, Oleg Smirnov, on Wednesday, on November 9.
“The offices of legal entities where Oleg Smirnov is the founder and top manager were searched today within the framework of criminal case,” Investigation Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass.
“Financial, business and other documents related to the criminal case were seized,” he said.
“It has been established during the investigation that Oleg Smirnov used premises registered as the representative office of the Transdniestrian Moldovan Republic in… Moscow to cover up for his financial activities in the Russian Federation,” he said.
“The investigation and detective work continues in order to determine all the circumstances of the crime,” Markin added.
In late October, the Russian Investigation Committee opened a criminal case against Oleg Brizitsky, deputy chairman of the Transdniestrian Republican Bank, Oleg Smirnov and other officials suspected of theft by way of large-scale embezzlement committed by a group of people by collusion.
According to the investigators,from November 2008 to November 2009 Brizitsky, by preliminary agreement with Smirnov and other persons, stole the money disbursed by the Russian government in humanitarian aid to Transdniestria to support pensioners and agriculture. As a result, about 160 million roubles were stolen.
