MOSCOW, September 6 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow police searched the Rosavtobank offices on Wednesday within the framework of a criminal case over illegal banking.
"The search was conducted by the Interior Ministry's department for Moscow together with economic security police and agents of the Federal Security Service," city police told Itar-Tass.
The investigators said certain citizens, in the period from 2001 through 2011, engaged in illegal cash-out transactions through the settlement account of dummy firms for an interest on the remitted sums. According to preliminary estimates, the income from the illegal business reached nine million roubles, the press service said.
The search was part of the investigation into the criminal case opened in July under Article 172 of Russia’s penal code /"illegal banking"/.
Police are checking bank personnel for involvement in the crime.
