A criminal case was instituted against the employees of Tour Operator LLC Natali Tours and Panorama Tour LLC under the article “Fraud”. On October 3, it was reported on the website of the Prosecutor General of Russian Federation. “Unidentified persons” are suspected of hiding more than 1 million Rubles (13,150 Euros), which were transferred to the settlement accounts of companies for organizing tours.
“... However, no contractual obligations were fulfilled to customers, tourist products were not provided, funds were not returned to citizens and were withdrawn from the accounts of the specified legal entities to the accounts of third parties”, - the release notes.
According to lawyer Eduard Shalonosov, the prospect of punishing the officials of LLC Tour Operator Natali Tours and Panorama Tour LLC is 100%. A fraud rate of more than 1 million rubles is regarded as particularly large, which means that the guilty party faces up to 10 years in prison. Based on practice, the actual period will be from three to five years. Experts do not exclude that the chain of proceedings may reach top management.
