MOSCOW, April 22 (RAPSI) - The Deposit Insurance Agency (DIA) has filed an application seeking to collect over 2.3 billion rubles (about $300 million) from a former president of Rosprombank Sergey Salogubov, according to the Moscow Commercial Court’s records.
The court has scheduled the hearing for June 30.
In December 2019, Moscow’s Presnensky District Court sentenced Salogubov to 5 years in penal colony for embezzling more than 730 million rubles ($9.5 million at the present exchange rate). In February, the Moscow City Court upheld the ruling.
According to investigators, in 2016, Salogubov and other managers of the bank conspired to embezzle assets of Rosprombank. From August to September 2016, one more top manager Olga Saberova and their accomplices concluded fictious claim assignment agreements, contracts of sale and agreements on compensation. Therefore, they stole bank’s assets worth over 730 million rubles entrusted to Salogubov and caused large-scale damage to the bank, the Investigative Committee’s press service reports.
Saberova has been put on the international wanted list on embezzlement charges.
The Central Bank of Russia revoked the license of Rosprombank in September 2016 for failure to abide by banking legislation. In November 2016, the Moscow Commercial Court declared the financial organization bankrupt.
