A criminal case of tax evasion has been initiated against the major Russian businessman Solomon Manashirov, the press office of the Investigative Committee of Russia has told Construction.ru.
It should be mentioned that this entrepreneur, together with Roman Manashirov and Ildar Samiev, was ranked 24th in the Forbes list of “kings of Russian real estate”, with an annual rental income of $90 m.
According to investigators, it was revealed that back in 2014, Solomon Manashirov worked out a criminal scheme for the “Armada” company to avoid tax. This scheme involved 18 affiliated organizations becoming nominal co-owners of a trade center. As a result, the federal budget was short-changed by over 98m roubles.
Now, within the framework of the investigation, 15 addresses have been searched simultaneously. It is noteworthy that Solomon Manashirov himself is in Israel at this moment and isn’t reacting to the Investigative Committee’s summons.
