MOSCOW, November 28 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s Federal Security Service, Interior Ministry and Federal Financial Markets Service have stopped an illegal activity on the securities market by a group of legal entities that transferred heavy funds abroad, the FSB public relations centre told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“The group was organized by Russian citizen Roman Nedlyakov repeatedly convicted of economic crimes. It included several professional stock market participants having licenses for brokerage and depositary activities,” the source said.
“Over 100 billion roubles were transferred abroad through their accounts in 2011,” the source said.
“In November the main investigative department of the Moscow police department using materials of the Federal Security Service and the Interior Ministry instituted a criminal case on illegal banking activity,” the source said.
Nedlyakov was arrested on November 24.
“The Federal Financial Markets Service imposed bans on operations with securities through accounts used for money transfer by commercial structures owned by Nedlyakov on the sum of 3.2 billion roubles,” the source said.
“As a result of joint efforts the Federal Security Service and the Interior Ministry stopped a large-scale channel of transferring funds abroad,” the source said.
