Sberbank finishes money laundering schemes in Chechnya through its branches

With regard to the former head of Said-Magomed Dzhabrailov's subdivision, the bank conducted its own investigation.
 The system for money laundering in the Chechen branch of Sberbank is liquidated. This was told in an interview with RIA Novosti, the deputy chairman of the bank Stanislav Kuznetsov.

He specified that several washing channels were found on the territory of the republic. At the same time, investigations at the Interior Ministry level in the case of Said-Magomed Dzhabrailov, the former head of the Chechen Sberbank, are not being conducted now, Kuznetsov added.

According to him, Sberbank has conducted its own verification against Dzhabrailov. This leader was removed and dismissed from the Savings Bank on the basis of violations of the administrative order, said Kuznetsov.

In July, Dzhabrailov was declared a federal wanted list. He was suspected of organizing a criminal group, which opened one-day firms for cashing cash. The companies were registered for dummies, according to investigators.

"The Investigative Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the Chechen Republic is investigating criminal cases on the facts of the illegal formation of 12 legal entities for the purpose of illegally cashing money through the Chechen branch of the Savings Bank of Russia," the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Chechen Republic reported. As a result of illegal actions committed using only eight firms, the state suffered damage amounting to more than 298 million rubles. The organizer of the establishment of firms is exactly Dzhabrailov, the investigation implied.

In November, Andrey Podsvirov became the head of the Sberbank branch in the Chechen Republic, Tass reported. Podsvirov previously headed the bank's branch in North Ossetia.
