MOSCOW, May 12 (Itar-Tass) —— A lawyer of former CEO of Bank of Moscow Andrei Borodin has refuted media allegations about a criminal case against his client in Switzerland and blocking of his accounts.
“The anonymous information disseminated by news agencies about an alleged arrest of the accounts of the former executives of Bank of Moscow in Switzerland is nothing more but another stage in a wide-scale campaign to discredit Mr. Borodin,” he told Itar-Tass on Saturday.
“There is no official information about any criminal case or any account freezing,” he stressed.
Earlier in the day, media reported that the Swiss prosecutor’s office has opened a criminal case against former first vice president of Bank of Moscow Dmitry Akulin on money laundry charges. According to reports, similar charges were brought against Bank of Moscow’s former president Andrei Borodin and Akulin’s and Borodin’s accounts with Swiss banks were blocked.
