MOSCOW, February 11, 22:18 /ITAR-TASS/. The Filimonovs married couple accused of large-scale fraud in Russia has been extradited from Montenegro, the press service of the Russian interior ministry told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
According to investigators, Konstantin and Svetlana Filimonovs set up a joint stock company Financial Company Private Investments in April 2005 to raise money from residents of Russia’s Urals Chelyabinsk region under the guise of investment activities and promised to pay dividends of from 30 to 60 percent of profits to their potential investors.
In November 2009, the couple wound down their commercial activities, having paid nothing to the investors, and fled.
Investigators say the Filimonovs’ commercial activities incurred financial loss to more than 3,000 people to a sum of at least 400 million roubles.
A criminal case was opened and the couple was put on the international wanted list.
The Filimonovs were traced in Montenegro. After Montenegro’s police had been informed about this case via Interpol channels, the two were detained.
