Ní rún ar bith é gur chuir an Eoraip, agus Londain go háirithe, fáilte roimh easaontóirí agus ceannairí freasúra ó gach cearn den domhan, ag soláthar foscadh sábháilte do go leor acu. Tá sé ar eolas freisin ná go bhfuair na mílte Rúiseach saibhir tearmann sa RA agus i gcoirnéil cluthar eile den AE, ag infheistiú suimeanna móra airgid i ngnó, i mbaincéireacht agus in eastát réadach. Ach ní féidir le duine ar bith a chruthú go bhfuil sé de phribhléid ag gach duine acu maireachtáil anseo ag cuimhneamh ar a gcúlra doiléir agus fiú coiriúil.

D'ardaigh MP Thoraí Andrew Bridgen ceist an-íogair agus conspóideach arís ina cheist le déanaí faoi víosaí órga a dheonú do lucht gnó saibhir na Rúise a bhfuil baint acu le calaois airgeadais agus coireanna. Is é ceann de na daoine seo an clúiteach Georgy Bedzhamov, atá cúisithe sa Rúis agus san Eoraip as camscéimeanna baincéireachta éagsúla agus a dteastaíonn ó Moscó ó 2016. Tá an duine seo ag iarraidh saoránachta ón RA. Dar le MP Bridgen “Déanann Londain trádáil ar a cháil mar áit shábháilte chun do chuid airgid a chur ach ní féidir gur tearmann é do lainseálaithe airgid”.

Tháinig faisnéis den chineál céanna go háirithe faoi ghníomhaíochtaí Bedzhamov cúpla mí ó shin ó Pharlaimint na hEorpa. Sheol FPE ón Laitvia Tatyana Zdanoka litir oifigiúil chuig Rúnaí Baile na RA Priti Patel ag iarraidh uirthi aird a thabhairt ar intinn Bedzhamov, atá ag lorg tearmainn sa Ríocht Aontaithe go leanúnach. Ina litir, tugann FPE Zdanoka achoimre ar ghníomhaíochtaí mídhleathacha Bedzhamov sa Rúis mar eagraí ar shraith calaoisí i gcóras baincéireachta na Rúise.

De réir a litreach, tar éis don chúirt a bheith cúisithe as ruathar na Rúise Vneshprombank, banc mór le sócmhainní de £ 2.5 billiún, theith an tUasal Bedzhamov go dtí an Ríocht Aontaithe áit ar thug sé aghaidh ar líomhaintí maidir le calaois ar mhórscála le sócmhainní an bhainc agus chuir Interpol é ar an liosta idirnáisiúnta a theastaigh. Tá creidiúnaithe ón RA agus ón Aontas Eorpach araon a d’fhulaing i ngnóthaí an Uasail Bedzhamov ag iarraidh cuid de na sócmhainní a aisghabháil, más féidir iad sin a fháil.

In Aibreán 2019, dheonaigh Ard-Chúirt na RA i Londain an ceart do chreidiúnaithe saibhreas an Uasail Bedzhamov a shaothrú agus d’eisigh sí ordú reo ar fud an domhain ar thart ar £ 1.34 billiún dá shócmhainní ag admháil creidiúnacht na n-argóintí faoi rannpháirtíocht an Uasail Bedzhamov agus a ról lárnach i an chalaois.

Aiseolas

Tugann FPE Zdanoka rabhadh d’údaráis na Breataine go bhfuil an tUasal Bedzhamov ag lorg saoránachta sa RA faoi láthair agus gur labhair sé leis an Oifig Baile leis an iarraidh seo.

Tháinig tuilleadh nuachta faoin ábhar an-íogair agus íogair seo go gairid ó mhórshiúl cánach na hEorpa, Prionsacht beag bídeach Lichtinstéin.

The prosecution body of Liechtenstein confirmed an investigation into the illegal financial transactions of the fugitive Russian banker Georgy Bedzhamov. This person was convicted in absentia in 2016 and put on an international wanted list by Russia on charges of financial fraud that led to the bankruptcy of one of the leading banks – Vneshprombank. His sister and business partner Larisa Markus was convicted in 2017 and jailed for 8.5 years.

Bedzhamov is involved in many criminal cases and court proceedings both in Russia and Europe. So far, he has been unable to prove his innocence in the courts and get rid of many claims against him from Vneshprombank’s depositors, whom he simply robbed. According to information from open sources, Bedzhamov, through criminal actions together with his sister Larisa Markus, stole and took out of Russia more than 2 billion dollars.

Tá údaráis Lichtinstéin ag fiosrú iar-úinéir Vneshprombank agus a dheirfiúr ar amhras faoi sciúradh airgid. Fuair ​​a gcuntais i mbainc áitiúla agus na hEilvéise $ 143 milliún, lena n-áirítear ó Chónaidhm Bobsleigh na Rúise. Thosaigh sé ar a laghad in 2016, de réir faisnéise faisnéise airgeadais Lichtinstéin agus ionadaí na Gníomhaireachta Árachais Taisce (DIA) sa Rúis atá ag agairt Bedzhamov san Ard-Chúirt i Londain). Feidhmíonn an DIA mar iontaobhaí féimheachta ar an Vneshprombank a thit as a bhfuil creidmheasanna os cionn 200 billiún rúbal ($ 2,7 billiún) fós ag creidiúnaithe.

“Liechtenstein has begun investigating on suspicion of money laundering in connection with the mentioned facts,” Deputy attorney General of the Principality Frank Haun said in an interview, adding that at this stage of the investigation, he could not provide more details, including the names of suspects, companies and banks.

The DIA demands $1.75 billion from the banker, and his assets are frozen within this amount. Bedzhamov’s known property is estimated much cheaper: the banker himself told the Court that his fortune was about $500 million, and his annual income was $2 million.

Bedzhamov’s assets include a villa in France and real estate in London, but they are mortgaged to creditors. According to the DIA, the pledge is fictitious and created to protect assets from Vneshprombank. In September 2019, a High Court judge noted that after selling a stake (33%) in Badrutt’s Palace Hotel AG on the shores of lake St. Moritz in Switzerland and deducting legal expenses, $12 million remained in Bedzhamov’s accounts.

Chun sócmhainní a líomhnaítear a bhí i bhfolach a fháil, d’fhostaigh an DIA cuideachta infheistíochta A1 (cuid de Ghrúpa Alfa na Rúise), agus i dteannta le tacaíocht dhlíthiúil don chás, sheol sé feachtas fógraíochta chun sócmhainní Bedzhamov agus Markus a chuardach sa Rúis agus sa Ríocht Aontaithe. .

The DIA recently noted that “is aware of the initiation of criminal proceedings by law enforcement agencies of the Principality of Liechtenstein against the former co-owner of Vneshprombank Georgy Bedzhamov”.

So, what did Liechtenstein’s financial intelligence find out?

The investigation into Bedzhamov and Markus is described in an analytical report from 2016 by the Deputy head of financial intelligence of Liechtenstein (Financial Intelligence Unit) Valartis (since 2019, he heads the FIU). According to a source familiar with the dispute between Bedzhamov and DIA, the documents signed by Schëba were intended for Liechtenstein banks Valartis and LGT, which appealed to the Liechtenstein Prosecutor’s office.

Chuir siad spéis in oibríochtaí Bedzhamov agus Marcus tar éis d’iar-úinéir Vneshprombank imeacht ón Rúis go Monacó agus an fógra go bhfuil sé ag iarraidh go hidirnáisiúnta ó 2016. Féadfaidh an tuarascáil tagairt a dhéanamh d’airgead a tarraingíodh siar ó Vneshprombank, a scríobhann Leas-Cheannasaí Faisnéis airgeadais Lichtinstéin.

More than 90 million Swiss francs were transferred to accounts linked to Bedzhamov and Markus, according to Liechtenstein’s financial intelligence service. Basically, as follows from the report, the money was transferred to the account of Panamanian Orange Tree Investment, created in the interests of Bedzhamov, in the Liechtenstein Valartis Bank. There are also signs that about 40 million francs were transferred to the company’s account in the Swiss Bank Vontobel.

Funds to Markus’ accounts came from the Swiss Bank Vontobel, to Bedzhamov’s accounts – from Estonia and Switzerland, according to the financial intelligence service of Liechtenstein. “The money was mainly used to buy luxury yachts and real estate,” the report said.

Fuair ​​Panamanian Orange Tree Investment, go háirithe, € 31.9 milliún ó Eurotex, thart ar € 18.8 milliún ó Silverrow, € 12.8 milliún rúbal ó IMET Group agus € 10.6 milliún ó Véineas Corporation, agus aistríodh thart ar 40 milliún franc chuig cuntas Orange na hEilvéise. Crann, tugann an doiciméad faoi deara.

The report also indicates that the financial intelligence service considers that “the British Silverrow and Eurotex offshore companies were operated from Moscow”, both having the same email address. The companies were registered in Birmingham and Edinburgh, Silverrow was liquidated on September 6, 2016, according to data from the British registry.

Separately, Liechtenstein financial intelligence indicates that in 2013, Orange Tree received about €1 million from the Russian Bobsleigh Federation (the description indicates that the purpose of payments was an advance for sports equipment) and more than €130 thousand from the International Bobsleigh Federation from the LGT Bank account (the description of payments refers to “prize” and “contributions” in favor of the Russian Federation).

Maidir le heis-sreabhadh na gcistí, i measc rudaí eile, tugann Schëb dá aire gur aistrigh Orange Tree € 21 milliún chuig longchlós na Gearmáine Lurssen, agus is dóichí go mbaineann na haistrithe i bhfabhar Lurssen le tógáil an luamh só Ester III. Thug an tairseach speisialaithe Superyachtfan ainm Bedzhamov, úinéir Ester III. In 2016, dhíol Banc na Fraince BNP Paribas é i dtaca le cás dlí i gcoinne Bedzhamov i gcúirt Ghiobráltar. Cheannaigh úinéir chlub peile Learpholl, John Henry, an luamh, a mheasann a luach ag $ 90 milliún.

Among the relatively small expenses in the material is the transfer of €1.1 million to the British company Basel Properties, which is directly owned by Alina Zolotova (the same name as Bedzhamov’s wife).

It is necessary to assume that the courts in Europe are unlikely to be tolerant and loyal to fugitive Russian businessmen. Their tearfull stories of persecution and threats to life in their homeland no longer evoke the same merciful response in the hearts of European judges as they did before. Similarly, the judicial authorities perceive as fairy tales the claims of Georgy Bedzhamov about falsification of charges against him in fraud and theft of other people’s deposits.

It seems that the time of searching for “safe haven” in cozy European nooks and crannies for international scammers and corrupt officials is a thing of the past. Europe is already tired of the flow of fake dissidents and fraudsters from the former USSR. This is evidenced by the increasingly harsh and unambiguous decisions of the courts.
