The DIA requests that the former management of the International Bank of St. Petersburg be held vicariously liable.
Among the defendants in the claim for 12.2 billion rubles are the former owner of the bank and chairman of the Management Board Sergey Bazhanov, ex-members of the Management Board Maxim Anishchenkov and Tatyana Berezhanskaya, as well as former members of the Board of Directors Tatyana Bazhanova and Alexander Zuev.
The powers that be revoked the license from IBSP in October 2018. During the bankruptcy proceedings, it was found that the former management formed illiquid assets on the bank's balance sheet and withdrew funds through one-day transactions.
Bazhanov, the ex-owner and ex-senator from the Ulyanovsk region withdrew about 9 billion rubles through a scheme with UBS. IBSP with the participation of UBS, bought securities and the money went to the Cyprus firm Hervet Investments, owned by the brother of the wife of the main shareholder-Alexander Zuev.
On four occasions, the investigators sent a resolution to open a criminal case against Bazhanov for abuse of power and fraud. But the prosecutor's office of St. Petersburg did not coordinate this decision. During this time, Bazhanov fled to London, and was charged in absentia at the end of January this year.
