“In connection with the fact that defendant William Browder is evading the investigation failing to appear, despite the fact that he was notified of this necessity in various ways, the investigation requested the court to consider the issue of the use for him of the restraint measure – arrest in absentia,” the MVD press centre said.
“If the court supports this motion, the mechanism for putting Browder on the international wanted list will be activated, the ministry’s press centre informed.
CEO of the Hermitage Capital Management investment fund - British citizen William Browder is accused in Russia of tax evasion worth over 522 million roubles (Article 199, part 2 of the RF Criminal Code). According to the investigation, he is accused of falsification of tax returns and illegal use of benefits for the disabled.
