The project “Dossier” found at the Olympic champion Tatiana Navka, the wife of press Secretary of Russian President Dmitry Peskov, a foreign account. This writes the “Rain”.
Representatives of the “Dossier” they say that in their possession documents showing that the account was opened on 20 February 2014 to the registration of marriage with Dmitry Peskov.
“File” thinks the account is still not closed. Investigators managed to make a test translation of five Euro when you transfer the system recognizes the international number (IBAN) of the account and tied it to the name Tatiana Navka. “If there was any problem with the transaction, the transfer would not have gone. We called the Bank to know the status of payment — we have confirmed that the money is received by the receiving Bank”, — told in the center of the “Rain”.
Tatiana Navka and Dmitry Peskov, denied that it accounts abroad. “This is not true. I have no existing Bank account abroad,” said Navka. Press Secretary of the President said that his wife had been when she lived in the US, but after moving to Russia, they were closed. “She really can’t have foreign accounts, and it fully complies with current legislation”, — said Peskov.
According to the Guardian, the same day as the opening of alleged accounts of grooves in a Swiss Bank in her name was Carina was offshore Global Assets (British virgin Islands).
As previously wrote the Center for the study of corruption and organized crime (OCCRP) on “Panama records”, the registration of offshore Navka start on 5 February 2014, i.e. a few weeks before the opening of the account. Signed “Tatiana Aleksandrovna Navka” request, where she calls herself a “professional skater”, says that the company “plans to manage assets in excess of one million dollars.”
The existence of the offshore company Peskov also denied: “the Offshore has never been registered. That is, as such offshore for Navka has never been reported, and offshore for Navka no. And it was not”.
The Deputy Director of “transparency international — Russia” Ilya Shumanov said logical appearance account and offshore company in one day: “Offshore company open not just for something, and to conduct transactions. The first thing you do when you open IE or LLC, is go to the Bank to open the account, otherwise you will not be able to carry out. Also with offshore company: the opening of a legal entity should always open accounts”.
Offshore was eliminated in 2015, writes the Guardian. Is a Bank account in the process of elimination is unknown. As suggested by Schumann, the account can still be opened “for objective reasons”: “for Example, if the Bank has concerns about the legality of the origin of the Deposit. Assume that the official or relative of an official received on account of the large sum, and the origin of the money — a strange anonymous Belizean company. If you got the money from the offshore company to your account, if you please justify the origin. There are difficulties to explain to the Bank, who, where and how the money moved. If you can’t do that, the money and the account frozen. That is, it is, but you can’t dispose of them after the fact. I know about some cases when tens, hundreds of thousands of euros hang in the accounts — mayors, Vice-governors, former members of the state Duma”.
Federal law prohibiting civil servants and their close relatives have accounts in banks abroad was signed by the President on 7 may 2013.
