The criminal community of billionaires Ziyavudin and Magomed Magomedovs included at least 16 people, six of them in the international wanted list, said an investigator at the Interior Ministry. In the case of arrested assets of 300 billion rubles.
The Investigation Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs brought charges against 16 people in a criminal case against the owner of the Summa group Ziyavudin Magomedov and the former senator Magomed Magomedov. This was told by investigator Nikolai Budilo at a meeting in the Tverskoy court, which on January 30 resolves the issue of extending the arrest to the brothers, as well as to the general director of the company Intex, Arthur Maksidov.
“Within the framework of this case, more than 12 criminal cases are combined into one proceeding. There are 16 defendants in total, of whom six are on the international wanted list, ”said Budilo.
He justified the need to extend the arrest by saying that the Magomedovs continue to control stolen property and influence witnesses. “In particular, one of the episodes of the case is connected with the infliction of bodily injuries against a former employee, namely the private security guard Ziyavudin Magomedov. From the testimony of the victim it follows that because of the actual seizure of the port of Makhachkala, intimidation measures were taken against him – he was beaten, ”said Budilo. In his opinion, the accused also “have the opportunity to send part of the stolen funds to bribe witnesses in order to counter the investigation.”
“There are search reports in the case, which confirm that the Magomedovs’ authorized representatives continue to renew their offshore companies to third parties, whose location has not yet been established,” said Budilo. At the same time, he made a reservation that, among other things, the property is being corresponded to a relative of the Magomedovs in the USA.
On the eve of his arrest, Ziyavudin Magomedov had planned to fly to Miami in a private jet, a spokesman said earlier. In the following months, the Ministry of Internal Affairs established that this aircraft “was not the only one, and there were other means of transportation [Magomedov] abroad, including airplanes designed for offshore companies.”
Budilo also denied the allegations of the brothers that the last years there had been a conflict between them and they had not actually communicated. “The sale of shares of offshore companies that manage the Novorossiysk Commercial Sea Port (NCSP) was made abroad in the interests of both brothers. There is also information that it was the two brothers who managed the so-called engineering asset of the amount – the companies “Globelelektroservis”, “Stroynovatsiya” and “Inteks”, said Budilo.
In addition, Magomed Magomedov, who allegedly had no relation to the structures of Summa, constantly received information about the progress of affairs in the group companies; his office was constantly visited by representatives of the company Fesco and the companies of the engineering unit of the group, says Budilo.
In addition, Magomed Magomedov discussed Summa’s problems with officials, the investigator said. And after the arrest of Eldar Nagaplov, the general director of Globelelektroservis, Magomedov received the text of the decision on his involvement as an accused.
“If Ziyavudin Gadzhiyevich tried to fully submit to the tax inspection documents confirming his ownership of offshore companies, Magomed Gadzhiyevich concealed this information in every way. His proxies in correspondence with those located in Cyprus confirm this directly, ”said Budilo. Nevertheless, not all the foreign business of Ziyavudin Magomedov (including several restaurants) was declared; On the part of its assets, the state bodies of the Russian Federation did not have data. Now the competent authorities of France are investigating tax crimes related to the business of Magomedov, including the “secretive possession of offshore companies,” said Budilo.
Now, in the case of Magomedov, assets have been arrested, including in the form of funds in accounts, amounting to about 300 billion rubles, the defendant himself said during the meeting. Earlier, RBC sources reported that the Tverskoy Court of Moscow had seized $ 750 million arrested by the Magomedov brothers from selling their stake in Russia’s largest port operator, the Novorossiysk Commercial Sea Port (NCSP).
