MOSCOW, May 23 (Itar-Tass) - The homes of current and former top managers of the company Potok8 (previously known as the Mirax Group) and its affiliates were searched on Thursday, the Interior Ministry’s press-center has told Itar-Tass.
“The homes of former and current top managers of the developer holding company Potok8, OOO Avanta and Concordia Asset Management in the elite compounds inside and outside Moscow were searched. Police operatives confiscated items and documents that may indicate the theft of deceived clients’ cash and its transfer to the accounts of offshore entities,” the Interior Ministry said.

The economic security and anti-corruption department of the Interior Ministry and the Investigative Committee of Russia’s Interior Ministry, backed up by OMON riot police, held searches within the framework of the criminal investigation into the theft of 5.7 billion rubles from the co-investors into the Kutuzovskaya Milya residential compound construction project.
