BOGOTA, September 10. /TASS/. A criminal group suspected of involvement in a banking fraud in Russia and white-washing a sum of 300 million U.S. dollars has been detained by the Ecuadorian police, a spokesman for Ecuadorian prosecutor’s office said on Wednesday.
The police detained four men whose named have not been made public. The special operation was conducted following an investigation of the money laundry department of the Ecuadorian prosecutor general’s office. The investigation was launched about a year ago after Ecuadorian prosecutors had received operational information from their Russian partners.
The operation was held in the cities of Guayaquil, Daule, Samborondon, Salitre and El Triunfo, and in the provinces Guayas. Law enforcers arrested 30 real estate assets, 19 of them being banana plantations, and seized financial documents.
