The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation continues investigation of a probe into financial operations with funds acquired by other individuals in an illegal way (Paragraph B of Part 4 of Article 174 of the Criminal Code of Russia).

Today searches are carried out in 30 regions and include searches in headquarters of the organization and at residences of a number of staff members of FBK regional units. Items and documents of relevance to the investigation are seized.

A number of FBK staff members have been summoned for interrogation under the probe.

Apart from that, the Investigative Committee of Russia motioned the court to arrest FBK accounts in credit organizations. It was established that money from foreign sources were transfered to the indicated accounts.
