Shigaev's Case

The former Head of Baltiyskiy Bank Oleg Shigaev accused of fraud and money laundering was in absentia arrested by the court. This is stated in the message posted on the website of the Investigative Committee of Russia.

      Earlier Shigaev was in absentia charged with crimes under part 4 of the article 159 (“Large-scale fraud”) and paragraph “b” of part 4 of the article 174.1 (“Legalization (laundering) of criminally obtained money on a large scale”) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. Shigaev was put on the federal wanted list. The investigation states that when Shigaev was a President of Baltiyskiy Bank he used his official position to make the members of the bank’s credit committee give loans to the legal entities controlled by him (“Izhant” and “Cassiopeia” companies). After that, over 3.37 billion roubles were transferred to the accounts of these companies from June to August 2014. After that, according to the Investigative Committee, the accused legalized the proceeds.
