Founder of Rolf car dealer to turn to Russian business ombudsman for defense

Earlier, Russia’s Investigative Committee initiated a criminal case against Sergey Petrov and several managers of the company for withdrawal of $63.4 mln abroad

MOSCOW, June 27. /TASS/. Founder of the Rolf car dealer, Sergey Petrov plans to contact business ombudsman Boris Titov to protect his interests.

"I will turn to him. I need to use all the options," Petrov told TASS.

"Of course, we should somehow stop this wave of arbitrariness from security forces. We have already lost a lot of businesses. What is most important is that those who have not lost their business - they see what is going on in front of them and they don’t make long-term investments," he added.

Earlier on Thursday, Russia’s Investigative Committee initiated a criminal case against Sergey Petrov and several managers of the company for withdrawal of 4 bln rubles ($63.4 mln) abroad, the committee’s spokeswoman Svetlana Petrenko told TASS.

The Rolf Group is one of the largest importers and retailers of passenger cars. The company was founded in August 1991.
