MOSCOW, January 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow detectives have opened a criminal case over a massive fraud committed by tourist ticket operator Eviterra Travel, which had sold several thousand fake air tickets through the Internet before the New Year holidays.
“The Moscow main investigation department of the Russian Investigative Committee opened a criminal case under Article 159 Part 4 of the Criminal Code for a massive fraud committed by several employees yet unexposed in Eviterra Travel company,” spokesman of the Russian Investigative Committee Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
“The detectives have found that during 2013 employees of company Eviterra Travel were selling the tickets for flights of different air companies on behalf of Avia Centre Ltd., but more than one million rubles (430.6 thousand) of proceeds from the air ticket sale were not transferred and were misused at their own discretion. In this regard, Avia Centre Ltd. has cancelled the sold tickets,” Markin said.
On January 5, it was reported that about 6,000 air tickets, which were bought in tourist ticket operator Eviterra through the Internet before the New Year, were found invalid. According to some media reports, company Avia Centre, a mediator between air ticket booking services and air companies, has cancelled the tickets, because the settlements were not made with the company for 10 days of cooperation. On January 6, Eviterra reported about an agreement to restore the air tickets on January 6 to 11, the talks continue on the air tickets after January 12.
Meanwhile, on the same day the Investigative Committee has launched an inquiry prior to the investigation to find the details of the offence and culprits.
