Novosibirsk customs officers have stopped the illegal activities of a front company and revealed the identity of the fictitious director. Criminal cases have been opened

Officers of the Novosibirsk customs revealed a one-day firm, which was used for criminal schemes in foreign economic activity. Customs officers managed to establish that the illegal formation of a legal entity through a front director and the submission of data to the tax authorities for the registration of the false company was engaged in a resident of Novosibirsk. A criminal case was opened against her under part 1 of article 173.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation

A second criminal case (under part 1 of article 173.2 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) was initiated against a citizen who provided the suspect with his documents for a fee for the creation of a fictitious organization

“In the framework of operational and investigative measures it was established that this firm was used as a transit link in the withdrawal of funds abroad,” said Anatoly Lisitsa, deputy head of Novosibirsk customs. – In addition, such firms are often created to commit other crimes in the customs sphere, including smuggling and evasion of customs payments

According to the Siberian Operational Customs Service, in 2024 Siberian customs authorities opened six criminal cases against specific citizens for illegal formation (creation, reorganization) of legal entities (Article 173.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation)
