Moscow expects Cyprus to impartial investigation of the Browder case

35
Russia is counting on an impartial investigation of Cypriot law enforcement officers in the case of the founder of the Hermitage Capital fund, William Browder, and bringing those responsible to justice, reports RIA News Statement by Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.




We expect that the competent authorities of the Republic of Cyprus will impartially and conscientiously conduct a judicial investigation, and the perpetrators will be identified and brought to justice,
said the minister.

In October, the Ministry of Justice of Cyprus said that the legal cooperation with the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation in a criminal case concerning operations with Gazprom shares, one of the defendants of which William Browder is undergoing, is continuing. The lawsuit is registered in court, and further execution of the request is suspended until a court decision is issued.

We proceed from the fact that the investigation in the case you mentioned is suspended in accordance with the existing judicial procedures in your country, but has not been terminated. Relevant clarifications are received by us from the competent legal departments of the Republic of Cyprus and taken into account,
noted Lavrov.

According to him, a campaign has been launched in a number of Cypriot media to discredit the cooperation of the Russian Federation and Cyprus in the field of legal assistance in criminal and civil matters.

The thesis that Russian inquiries are supposedly politically motivated in nature, and the cooperation of the competent authorities of our countries goes beyond the usual international legal practice,
said the foreign minister.

The logical question is, who benefits? It is from the point of view of bias that the situation around the judicial investigation in the case of William Browder should be considered. We believe that the desire of William Browder himself and the circles supporting him to give this story a political tint is absolutely groundless, since it is a question of the commission of tax and other economic crimes in the territory of the Russian Federation,
He stressed.

Recall Browder in 1995 – 2007 was the largest foreign portfolio investor in Russia. He was later sentenced in absentia to nine years in prison in a criminal case of financial fraud. The UK has previously refused to extradite a businessman.

Browder is charged with the organization of tax evasion, “the organization of deliberate bankruptcy and the attempt to fail to fulfill the duties of a tax agent.” The charge includes episodes with the bankruptcy of the Dalnyaya Steppe company and the withdrawal of Gazprom shares abroad.

The total damage from the actions of Browder and his business partner Ivan Cherkasov was estimated by the investigation at 3,5 billion rubles. Currently they both live in London.

          And why not recognize that these shares are considered invalid, because the seizure of them occurred in violation of all the rules, etc. .. The shares are numbered, remove these numbers from the list and are short-lived. Consider them non-existent.

            You probably forgot about the polonium scandal? Berezovsky himself hanged himself and still stinks. But is it worth behind every thief to send a special group when there is a chance to return the money? here we say that striped everywhere climb and violate all laws. will we be like them? what will we be better?

              We do not need to climb anywhere. Shares, register, etc. everything in our territory. Yes, let them bark as much as they want. And imitation of activity is the essence of the policy of our liberal government. ALL POST-SOVIET TIME.

    Russian requests are supposedly politically motivated
    Anti-Russian rhetoric and the desire to incriminate Russia in some way is characteristic of almost all countries in contact with the "democratic" west, including and the media in Cyprus. So far no changes are expected in this direction.

      Cypriots as a whole treat Russians with great understanding. I myself know a dozen people who studied in the USSR in high schools and celebrate May 9 in Russian. In general, the Communist Party rules in Cyprus (I'm not joking)
      But politicians - clear stump will be sold more expensive.

      Indeed, there is some strange pattern, or it may be that they get impudent from the traitor, he doesn’t have any money, and he will bring money and pay money and pay taxes, and his pitcher of dirt will pour dirt on the Russian Federation, and it will become unnecessary accidentally hang himself. And Amer and them on the drum, South America is greater than a hundred traitors more, a hundred less. The corn belt is large.

    Russophobia is no longer paid, so you need to change shoes. Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite announced her readiness to cooperate with the Russian Federation without any preconditions.
    According to Grybauskaite, for some time “the neighbor will remain difficult”, but “the geopolitical situation is changing, it is always necessary to remain prepared to be open to change”.
    “It is better to cooperate, to trade, than to fight,” said the head of Lithuania.

    Magnitsky worked at this Hermitage Capital ...
    People were scared, apparently, in earnest, that Gazprom
    will fall under the sanctions on the famous "Magnetsky list".
    Therefore, they involved as much Lavrov.
