MOSCOW, June 7 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow prosecutors opened a criminal case over attempted fraud linked with the MMM 2011 project, an official at the city prosecutor's office told Itar-Tass.
"Criminal proceedings were initiated under Article 30, part 3 and Article 159, Part 4 /"attempted fraud"/ against unidentified persons who are using websites to invite citizens to invest in the MMM 2011 project, and then steal their money," the official said.
Earlier, city prosecutors said the resolution not to open a criminal case over this fact was illegitimate.
"According to the conclusions by the Expert Council under the Federal Antimonopoly Service for developing competition in financial markets, which examined the MMM 2011 project, it is a financial pyramid," the prosecutor said.
