The fact that the billionaire and co-owner of the Summa group Ziyavudin Magomedov is one of the defendants in a criminal case in France, told RBC with reference to two sources. When the case was initiated and what is the procedural status of a businessman, the interlocutors of the publication did not specify.

According to RBC, the case was initiated by the prosecutor's office of Lyon. Local investigators intended to question Magomedov, but their plans were confused by the arrest of a businessman on March 30 in Moscow. Now Ziyavudin Magomedov and his brother Magomed are in the SIZO. Brothers are accused of creating a criminal community, fraud and embezzlement.

In the spring, the French media devoted several publications to Ziyavudin Magomedov, stating that local law enforcement agencies were interested in real estate in 2014, which the billionaire owns in France, as well as the schemes through which it was acquired. For example, the weekly newspaper L'express said that Magomedov invested in real estate in France through intermediaries in Switzerland and the British Virgin Islands and thus could save up to € 1 million in tax payments. The publication also stated that in January in houses owned by Magomedov searches were conducted. According to the publication, they could take place in the framework of the money laundering investigation.

At the last court session on the Magomedovs case, held on November 1, investigators told about the criminal case filed in France, with which the former wife of the businessman Olga is connected. “Magomedova owns several restaurants in France, while she does not work anywhere. A criminal case involving taxes, ”- said the investigator. “This is a false statement,” Ziyavudin Magomedov was indignant in response. According to the billionaire, the criminal case was initiated not against his former spouse, but against the company that managed its assets.
