At that time, the people’s deputy was the actual controller of the company, and his son was a co-founder. According to investigators, after receiving the loan, which was secured by an elevator and a fictitious contract, they were immediately withdrawn to the accounts of the Swiss company CREATIV TRADING SA and the Belizean company Quadra Commodities SA Limited under contracts for the sale of tropical oil products for the specified amount.
