ARKHANGELSK, December 29 (Itar-Tass) — Arkhangelsk’s police arrested promissory notes worth 200 billion roubles, press service of the local police reported on Saturday.
The police investigators probe into several criminal cases, where criminals used so-called one-day firms to cash out at least three billion roubles.
Head of the police department on economic crimes Mikhail Novozhilov said that during the investigation in offices of the companies the police made over two dozen searches and arrested over three million roubles, over 100 plastic banking cards and savings books, which had been registered for faked persons, as well as computers and seals of the one-day firms. Among the documents the police found were promissory notes worth 200 billion roubles, computers containing the bank-client software and accounting paperwork, which proved the illegal activities, in which the suspects were involved.
The criminal community included managers and separate operating groups, where all responsibilities were divided. The lower layers were needy people, who were happy to give to the criminals in exchange for some little money the necessary information for registration of the one-day firms. The community’s organiser received clients – companies, which wanted to lower the tax base and to raise expenses, to extract money from the legal turnover by cashing it out. For that purposes, money was transferred to accounts of the one-day firms. The criminals received their percentage for the transactions.
“A suspected organiser of the criminal community is detained,” the police’s press service said. “More detailed information is not available for the interests of the investigation.”
