Another criminal investigation has been opened against Russian businessman Sergei Polonsky, who is currently in Cambodia, on the counts of fraud, a source in law enforcement agencies told Interfax.
"A new criminal case has been opened against the entrepreneur. Russian law enforcement agencies believe that Polonsky may be involved in large-scale fraud during the construction of the Rublyovskaya Riviera residential complex," the source said.
The charge was filed against the businessman in his absence.
The source suggested that this new criminal inquiry could prompt the Russian authorities to submit another request for Polonsky's extradition from Cambodia.
Moscow's Tverskoy Court has seized the assets of businessman Sergei Polonsky in the context of lawsuits filed by investors of the Kutuzovskaya Milya housing complex, the Russian Interior Ministry press office told Interfax on Monday.
