Probe finished against former Chairman of Klientsky Bank Board of Directors

The Main Investigations Directorate of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation finished the investigation into Alexander Klenovsky, the former Chairman of the Board of Directors of Klientsky Bank. He is charged with crimes specified in Part 4 of Article 160 (embezzlement) and Part 4 of Article 174.1 (legalization (laundering) of monetary funds or other property acquired by a person as a result of an offence committed by them) of the Criminal Code of Russia.

According to the investigators, in 2014, Klenovsky jointly with Andrey Lopatov, the Board Chairman, Ilya Volosevich, the Deputy Board Chairman, and other unidentified employees acting as an organized group had stolen the bank’s money in the amount exceeding 100 million rubles, including through transfer to the accounts of commercial organizations Santek LLC and Prostarengineering LLC controlled by them, and had allocated the money at their sole discretion. To legalize the appearance of their criminal actions, the members of the organized group had prepared documentation about the conclusion of loan agreements with organizations controlled by them and individuals who had not been aware of the criminal intent of the accomplices. Afterward, that documentation had been withdrawn by them from the document system of the bank for concealment of the circumstances of the theft.

The investigation gathered enough evidence; therefore, the criminal case with the approved indictment was sent to the court to be tried on the merits.

The criminal case against Lopatov and Volosevich who were hiding from the investigation was presented separately; they were declared on the international wanted list. One of the victims of their acts is Marina Zudina, the wife of Oleg Tabakov. In order to secure compensation for the inflicted damage, the investigators took measures for the seizure of the property of the convicts, including land plots and other tangible and intangible assets.
