Co-owner of a construction company accused of fraud, was extradited to Russia

“Russian citizen Vadim Zhuk, accused of fraud on a large scale, was delivered to Moscow from Spain.

It was established that in 2012, the man on behalf of the leadership of one of the Moscow firms working in the construction industry, in exchange for four bills of exchange received money from two citizens in the amount of more than 48 million rubles. At the same time, creditors were promised accrual of income in the amount of 30% per annum at the repayment of bills. However, having received the money, the suspect misappropriated them, after which he left Russia.

On this fact the investigators initiated a criminal case on the grounds of the crime stipulated by part 4 of Article 159 of the RF Criminal Code. The suspect was put on the Interpol Wanted List.

As a result of operational search activities, the offender was detained in Spain, after which he was extradited. Today, he was delivered to Russia accompanied by officers of the Russian Bureau of Interpol and the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia,” reported the official representative of the Russian Interior Ministry Irina Volk.
