The Investigative Administration of the MIA of Russia Administration for the Krasnoselsky District of St. Petersburg has completed the investigation of a criminal case against a 44-year-old local resident. She is accused of committing a crime under part 1 of Article 159.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.
The investigation established that in September 2017, the offender had provided to one of the banks of the city knowingly false information for obtaining a loan of more than 400 thousand rubles. The woman provided to bank employees information with fictitious place of work and the amount of wages as well as the company’s TIN which were not true. The citizen documented the loan on her passport and received the requested amount. The defendant paid interest on the loan for 5 months, and then ceased getting in touch and paying the debt on the loan. The security department of the bank launched an internal investigation: employees found out that over the past 2 years no contributions to the pension fund have been received from this citizen, therefore, she was not officially employed. It also turned out that the offender was not listed at the place of work indicated in the questionnaire. After that, the lawyers of the bank applied to internal affairs bodies.
As a result of the operational-search measures and investigative actions, the police officers detained the citizen and fully exposed her crime.
Currently, the criminal case has been sent to the District Court for consideration on the merits. The preventive measure selected for the suspect was a subscription on her own recognizance and proper conduct.
