Bank "Monolit" acquired corruption fissures

The former management of the bank "Monolit" got under criminal prosecution, the member of the board of directors of which was a well-known lawyer and businessman Dmitry Yakubovsky. They are accused of embezzling 6.4 billion rubles.
Ex-CEO this credit institution Alexander Danilin is detained, and his first deputy Andrei Ikramov - under house arrest. The investigation incriminates them, as well as a number of other defendants who are under a written undertaking not to leave the city, theft from the "Monolith" more than 6.4 billion rubles.

To draw attention of law enforcement bodies to theft from "Monolith" at least 4.6 billion rubles. The Deposit Insurance Agency (DIA) has been trying since May 2014, that is, two months after the credit institution was revoked. This happened in part because "Monolith" was "involved in conducting doubtful transactions in cash and non-cash forms," ​​the total amount of which for 2013 amounted to 9 billion rubles. To date, the bank owes customers about 8.7 billion rubles.

For three years, the capital police, which received allegations of abuse of authority (Article 201 of the Criminal Code), deliberate bankruptcy (Article 196 of the Criminal Code), as well as misappropriation or embezzlement (Article 160 of the Criminal Code), grounds for criminal prosecution of ex -bankers did not find. The situation changed only after the DIA went to the federal level, applying to the GUEBiPK Ministry of Internal Affairs. After inspecting the actions of bankers, the operatives passed materials to the management of the Investigative Committee of Russia for the Central District of Moscow, which saw in the actions of the managers of "Monolith" signs of particularly large fraud (Part 4, Article 159 of the Criminal Code). The first defendants of the investigation were the former directorates of this credit institution, Alexander Danilin and his first deputy, Andrei Ikramov. Recently, the investigation petitioned the court to elect in respect of both preventive measures. As a result, Mr. Danilin was sent to SIZO, and Mr. Ikramov was placed under house arrest. A few former managers of this credit institution, according to Kommersant, are under a written undertaking not to leave the country.

According to the investigation, from 2012 to 2014 the management of Monolit issued unsecured loans amounting to 6.4 billion rubles. almost one hundred commercial structures. Among them were, for example, Calypso LLC, Baltecom, Ledge, Teplogarant, Megabit and many others. At the same time, only a few of them carried out their financial and economic activities. The investigation found that the majority of borrowers were absent from the addresses indicated as the place of registration, did not have staff, and their management included the same people. Also, the investigation drew attention to the fact that 60 out of 70 firms stopped servicing interest on interest since February 2014, that is a month before the revocation of the license from Monolit.

Evidence of the guilt of bankers, according to law enforcement officers, served as the DIA handed to the detectives the documentation. From it, in particular, it followed that the loans were issued not only to companies whose financial status was assessed as poor, but even to those who did not submit a file to the bank at all. At the same time, all of them, as soon as the deadline for repaying the loan matched, the management of "Monolith" prolonged them automatically. It is interesting that two borrowers - Itera LLC and Aesthetika LLC - loans were issued in bars of platinum without any liquid provision.

Note also that in February this year the Moscow Arbitration Court partially satisfied the claim of the bankruptcy trustee of the bank "Monolith" about bringing to the subsidiary responsibility of the former managers of this credit institution by 6.4 billion rubles. However, according to the court's decision, out of the seven ex-bankers to which the claims were claimed, only Alexander Danilin and Andrei Ikramov will have to answer in solidarity. Obviously, in their case, the arbitration decision also became evidence in the criminal case.

Note that the member of the board of the bank "Monolith" from April 2012 to January 2013 was a famous lawyer and businessman Dmitry Yakubovsky. However, to him, according to "Kommersant", the investigation has no complaints at the moment. Nor was it with the Moscow Arbitration Court, which established that "he did not take any real decisions on the management of the credit institution, he did not sign documents on behalf of the bank, including credit," he said.

Alexander Danilin's lawyer declined to comment on the situation with his client. Contact with the protection of Mr. Ikramov, whose interests the lawyer represented by appointment, "Kommersant" failed.
