OREANDA-NEWS. The provisional administration of JSCB Benefit-bank (CJSC) appointed by Bank of Russia Order No. OD-2980, dated 2 November 2015, due to the revocation of its banking licence, encountered an obstruction of its activity starting the first day of performing its functions.

Management of JSCB Benefit-bank (CJSC) failed to provide the provisional administration with the loan agreements available in the bank's books worth 3.8 billion rubles which accounts for more than 50% of the bank's loan portfolio. Besides, the provisional administration did not get access to the electronic database of assets and liabilities of this credit institution, including liabilities to households. This may be indicative of an attempt to conceal documentary evidence of moving out assets from the bank.

The Bank of Russia submitted the information on the financial operations performed by the former management and owners of JSCB Benefit-bank (CJSC) which bear the evidence of the criminal offence to the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation, Russian Investigative Committee and the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation for consideration and procedural decision making.
