In Moscow Stanislav Mitrushin, former chairman of the board of directors of the bank "Sovetsky", was arrested in absentia. After three years of sanation, the Central Bank revoked the license in early July. The son of the founder of the bank, Vladimir Mitrushin, he is accused of embezzling about 2 billion rubles., Committed as part of an organized group.
The request of the investigative department (SD) of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Tverskoi district court satisfied on the second attempt - the prosecutor and the representative of Mr. Mitrushin did not attend the first meeting. On Monday, they were also not in the meeting room. The prosecutor, however, then appeared, and the defender in absentia accused banker had to be appointed, since his lawyer he did not have.
In court, a representative of the SD MVD reported that Stanislav Mitrushin was accused of committing a crime under Part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code "Fraud in a particularly large amount." The relevant criminal case was filed in May 2017, Vladimir Mitrushin, another former shareholder of Sovetskoye Alexander Ivanov, former chairman of the board of the bank Andrei Karpov and several ex-top managers of the credit institution became its defendants. Initially, an investigation was conducted against them by the GU MVD in St. Petersburg, which then forwarded the case to the SD MVD. In the spring of this year, investigators in absentia accused Stanislav Mitrushin of embezzlement, declaring him a federal wanted list, which did not bring any results. In this regard, the banker was put on the wanted list international, for which he needed an absentee arrest.
The lawyer objected to this measure of restraint, saying that the place where the person involved in the investigation had been located had not been determined by the investigation, moreover, the person under investigation was said to be a large father, and according to his version, they were even arrested in absentia in exceptional cases.
Such a case, the prosecutor decided, who supported the demand of the investigation, has already come. According to the prosecution, even while abroad, a former banker can continue criminal activities, destroy evidence on the case and generally interfere with the investigation, the term of which, by the way, is extended until September 10 this year. As a result, Mr. Mitrushin was arrested for two months - from the time of his extradition or deportation to Russia or in the event that he still finds himself at home.
The SD Interior Ministry charges Stanislav Mitrushin for complicity in the theft of about 2 billion rubles. According to the investigation, the money from the bank was withdrawn by lending to fictitious structures allegedly connected with former owners and top managers of the credit institution. The main withdrawal of assets occurred in 2015 - before making a decision on the rehabilitation of the "Soviet".
In the case there may be several episodes, including the issuance of a credit card to Mr. Mitrushin in 2009 with a limit of 15 million rubles. Two days before the introduction of the temporary administration in Sovetskoye, the card was prolonged until 2029, and its limit was increased to 20 million rubles. Subsequently, arbitration on the suit of the "Soviet" itself recognized such crediting of the bank's top manager unlawful.
It should be noted that the "Soviet" first sanitized the bank "Russian capital", and in 2016 it was reorganized by Tatfondbank, which the Central Bank stripped of licenses in March 2017. In February this year, the Central Bank announced that it would reorganize the bank through the Banking Sector Consolidation Fund, but on July 3 of this year, recognizing the further high-cost reorganization (the credit institution's liabilities amounted to 37 billion rubles), the Central Bank withdrew the license from the Soviets.
