Money laundering does not hide the US - Russian company will pay $ 5.9 million US government in the "Magnitsky case

The Russian company "Prevozon" agreed to pay 5.9 million US dollars of fines under the settlement agreement with the US government to launder Russian money in the US. This is the first time when western court forced someone who is accused of money laundering, pay Jamieson told CNN Fayerstoun, a lawyer who had to testify in the case.

"We will not allow to use the US financial system to launder money obtained from crimes committed anywhere - here in the US, Russia and elsewhere" - said in a statement Acting Manhattan prosecutor jung Kim.

"It sends a clear message to individuals who received these (laundered) money that they are dangerous to the West and this money can be confiscated. I believe - this case will give the green light for other countries "- said William Brouder, head of fund Hermitage Capital Management, and activists in the case of Magnitsky.

Former US Attorney Preet Bharara welcomed colleagues from New York on Twitter: "Congratulations jung and business team with Russian money on money. Predicate crimes - fraud, disclosed Sergei Magnitsky, who died under suspicious circumstances in a Moscow prison"

According to the charges, corrupt Russian government with the Russian mafia had the greatest deal of tax evasion in Russia illegally using the name of Hermitage. When the Hermitage lawyer Sergei Magnitsky discovered the fraud, he was imprisoned and then killed in prison. The Russian government claims that Magnitsky died of a heart attack. The money was then laundered, including $ 1.9 million for charges via "Prevezon" who bought "upscale commercial buildings and luxury apartments" allegedly laundered funds.

"They easily held", - told CNN Louise Shelley, an expert on illicit finance, which had to testify in court on the side of the US government on Tuesday, noting that the settlement did not require an accused party to admit his guilt. It was expected that the investigation will show how the Russian mafia reportedly stole 230 million dollars and concealed cash in real estate in New York.
