2.7 million rubles was secretly transferred abroad by an employee of a company engaged in supplying vehicles from Japan. The Vladivostok Customs Office has opened three criminal cases on the illegal transfer of funds abroad

The Vladivostok customs officers found out that for several months “behind the back” of the company, the offender had been producing inaccurate invoices for the supply of motorcycles in his own name and transferring personal funds in foreign currency to bank accounts of non-residents

Alexander Movchan, deputy head of law enforcement at Vladivostok Customs, explained that the offender, using the company’s data, did not purchase motorcycles, but withdrew money for his own purposes. In total, more than 2.7 million rubles were transferred to the accounts of non-residents using false documents

The Vladivostok Customs initiated 3 criminal cases against the citizen under part 1 of article 193.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. Liability provides for a fine of two hundred thousand to five hundred thousand rubles or in the amount of wages or other income of the convicted person for a period of one to three years, or compulsory labor for up to three years, or imprisonment for a term of up to three years.
