10:52 12/07/2019

MOSCOW, July 12 (RAPSI) – The Moscow Commercial Court has extended for 6 months an asset sales procedure against Vneshprombank former co-owner Georgy Bedzhamov, charged with large-scale fraud, according to court records.

A petition for the extension of bankruptcy proceedings has been filed by an estate administrator of the debtor.

The Moscow Commercial Court granted a motion filed by VTB24 bank and declared Bedzhamov bankrupt in July 2018.

In 2016, Bedzhamov was put on the international wanted list on embezzlement charges. Investigators believe that ex-Vneshprombank president Larisa Markus along with her brother Georgy Bedzhamov, who once co-owned the bank, created an organized crime group to siphon money from the bank. The group including Glushakova allegedly granted loans to sub-companies and did not refund money to Vneshprombank. Allegedly, from May 2009 to December 2015, conspirators managed to embezzle about 114 billion rubles.

In May 2017, Markus was sentenced to 9 years in prison. Later, her sentence was reduced by 6 months.

In March 2016, the Moscow Commercial Court declared Vneshprombank bankrupt. Vneshprombank was one of the top 40 by assets before it lost its license in January of the same year.
