"FC Opening" began the prosecution of the former owners of "Rosgosstrakh": according to the statement of the bank's management, a case on embezzlement was initiated. Sergei Khachaturov was arrested.
The Lefortovo court on April 18 arrested for two months Sergei Khachaturov, the younger brother of the former presidency of Rosgosstrakh Danil Khachaturov, lawyer Danil Khachaturov Alexey Melnikov said on Thursday. Khachaturov, Jr. is suspected of misappropriation or embezzlement (Article 160.4 of the Criminal Code), a court representative said. According to the lawyer, we are talking about the assets of the company that owns a stake in OJSC "Rosgosstrakh": "The new owner believes that something was not paid to him."
He did not name the company, but said that she participated in the sale of Rosgosstrakh to the Otkritie group. At the end of 2016, Danil Khachaturov agreed to exchange the insurer for a stake in FC Otkritie. But at the end of August 2017, the Central Bank took the bank to the Fund for the Consolidation of the Banking Sector - together with related banks, pension funds and Rosgosstrakh.
Outside the deal, there were "RGS life" - Khachaturov sold it to his friend Alkhaz Sangulia - and "RGS medicine", owned by the Cyprus RGS Asset Ltd, which, according to the Central Bank on April 28, 2017, was controlled by Sergei Khachaturov.
Melnikov sees in the criminal case and the arrest of Sergei Khachaturov the desire of a group of people to challenge business agreements that were achieved and implemented by Sergey Khachaturov's company in 2017.
The statement to the law enforcement agencies filed a "new leadership" of the "Discovery", say a law enforcement officer and a person close to one of the parties to the dispute (the representative of the TFR did not answer the call). In December 2017 the bank was headed by Mikhail Zadornov. He and "FC Opening" declined to comment.
Zadornov headed the board of directors of Rogosstrakh and immediately criticized the company's work under Danil Khachaturov: allegedly the management did not aim to obtain legal profit, but the company was stealing. Khachaturov replied: in order to steal from himself, you can come up with an easier way than to put on it 15 years of life and hundreds of billions of rubles. "FC Opening" rendered Rosgosstrakh financial assistance in 106 billion rubles, said the general director of the insurer Nikolaus Fry.
On April 10, the deputy chairman of the Central Bank, Vladimir Chistyukhin (quoted by TASS), said that "those cases that [the Central Bank] seemed suspicious or related to the violation of the law were sent to law enforcement agencies."
"Rosgosstrakh" can not comment on the actions of law enforcement agencies against Khachaturov, said the representative of the insurer, but will continue to defend his position in the Moscow Arbitration Court, where there are several lawsuits against former top managers. The new management of "Rosgosstrakh" revealed transactions evidencing the withdrawal of assets; significant damage was inflicted, Rosgosstrakh is preparing new claims, he said.
"I'm surprised: there were no complaints against us, neither judicial nor pre-trial," Danil Khachaturov told Vedomosti. The essence of the claims is incomprehensible to him, he fulfilled all obligations on the deal with his brother, "everything passed under the control of the Central Bank."
The Central Bank declined to comment.
Danil Khachaturov said that he himself attended the interrogation: "I will not go anywhere, we will prove our innocence in the courts".
The arrest of Sergei Khachaturov could be an instrument of pressure on Danil Khachaturov to take the life insurer, said the former top manager of Rosgosstrakh. Two people close to Rosgosstrakh know that the representatives of the bank agreed on the repayment of the "CSW of life", but without success. The company has about 100 billion rubles. reserves, explains the interest of FC Opening, one of them.
On Tuesday, FSB officers conducted investigative actions in the new office of the "CSW of life", its representative told, and recently the banks of FC Otkritie stopped selling the policies of the "CSW of life".
Agreements with these banks are valid, their operations are not commented on by the company, said a representative of the CSW of Life. In 2017, its fees amounted to 53.5 billion rubles., More - only from the "daughter" of the Savings Bank.
