Documented: Parex Bank and Tambovskaya Mafia

Attached below is a document dated 29 May 2015 by the “Fiscalia Especial Contra la Corrupcion y la Criminalidad Organizada.”  It is the case prepared by Spain against Vladimir Putin’s Tambovskaya Mafia.  The Tambovskaya are involved in looting governments, international heroin trafficking, and murdering informants.  The wars in Chechnya and Ukraine in which tens of thousands of people were killed could also be blamed on Tambovskaya.

It was already known that Mikhail Rebo (sometimes spelled Rabo) was the main money launderer for Tambovskaya and his wife Tatiana Rebo was manager of the Parex Bank office in Berlin.  Now we have more details.

Parex Bank is mentioned in the document on pages 130, 137, 276, 277, 278, 379, 380, and 392.  Parex sister company International Overseas Services is mentioned on page 130.  Several other notorious Latvian banks are mentioned throughout.

Parex is mentioned again on pages 404, 405, and 406 including specific mention of Tatiana Rebo.  Throughout the document there are references of money going through Latvia and Germany, with Germany sometimes used to mean Parex Bank Berlin.

Page 429 mentions “Rabinovich” who owns a store in Riga.  This could be a reference to Parex shareholder Grigory Rabinovich who was a close friend of the Parex oligarchs.  When Parex was looted prior to the handover of Parex liabilities to European taxpayers, the bank made a fake unrecoverable loan to Rabinovich which seemed to be a refund of the money he paid to purchase Parex shares.  The other minority shareholders including Americans and Swedes didn’t get refunds.  Obviously this was illegal however nobody got punished except taxpayers.

On page 429 starts a discussion of “Chaika” who seems to be Russian General Prosecutor Yuri Chaika who is known to have laundered money through Latvia, and “Vova” who is Vladimir Putin.

The Latvian government and European Bank for Reconstruction and Development have been running a propaganda and disinformation campaign since 2009 to blame the disappearance of the assets of Parex on the United States and Sweden.  Even though it was already revealed in 2014 that the Latvia/EBRD/Parex bailout of 2009 was a cover-up fraud, most newspapers refuse to publish truthful articles and are still sticking with the United States/Sweden story.

The signer of the fraud, Valdis Dombrovskis, is now European Commission Vice President responsible for the integrity of the euro.  Another fraud organizer, Bank of Latvia Governor Ilmars Rimsevics, is on the council of the European Central Bank.  The ECB is the largest investor in Latvian bonds and Rimsevics knows that the bonds were issued fraudulently to bailout a Russian Mafia bank.  The only person Latvia prosecuted in connection with the fraud bailout was whistleblower Ilmars Poikans who exposed Rimsevics for paying a huge bonus to himself after organizing the fraud.

Spain issues Warrants

A Spanish judge has issued warrants for Vladimir Putin’s inner circle, a group of top government officials linked with the Tambovskaya Mafia of St Petersburg.  The officials include Vladislav Reznik, Nikolai Aulov, Dmitry Kozak, Viktor Zubkov, Anatoly Serdyukov, Igor Sobolevsky, and Leonid Reiman.  Reiman has been a regular visitor to Latvia for years because he banks in Latvia.  His business rival Leonid Rozhetskin was assassinated in Jurmala in 2008.

Gennady Petrov, a top figure in Tambovskaya, was arrested in Spain in 2008 however later was allowed to visit Russia.  He is still in Russia living free today.  Spain also issued a warrant for his billionaire friend Mikhael Chernoy however Chernoy is protected by the Israeli government.

We at LawlessLatvia are extremely happy that a government in the West has taken action against Putin’s oligarchs.  Hurray for Spain!

The United States has issued warrants in the past for Putin’s associates Semyon Mogilevich and Dmitry Firtash.  However Mogilevich is protected by the Russian government and Firtash is protected by the Austrian government.

Shame on the United Kingdom for hosting some of Putin’s oligarchs for 20 years without issuing warrants for them.  The UK seems to have a strategy of protecting oligarchs because of a perceived belief that the UK benefits from allowing oligarchs to spend stolen money in the UK.

Perhaps the new Spanish warrants will cause people to think of the banks in Latvia and Lithuania which are linked to Putin.  Parex Bank of Latvia was identified by the media long ago for being linked to Tambovskaya.  And, Ukio Bank of Lithuania was recently identified in the Panama Papers for transferring massive corrupt payments to Putin’s apparent nominee.

Many assets of Parex Bank disappeared in 2008.  Latvia nationalized the bank and partly re-privatized it to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in a deal that was confirmed fraudulent when Latvia reversed the privatization five years later because of a secret guarantee.  Meanwhile, Parex oligarch Valery Kargin moved to Russia.

Many assets of Ukio Bank disappeared in 2013 and again the EBRD organized mysterious deals at public expense to hide the truth from the public.  Meanwhile, Ukio oligarch Vladimir Romanov also moved to Russia.

Officials in Europe and the United States refuse to investigate clear fraud evidence provided by whistleblowers in both cases, apparently to protect the EBRD.  And, the Media continues to produce false articles blaming the collapse of Parex and Ukio on the Global Financial Crisis rather than internal fraud and embezzlement, while praising the EBRD for rescuing Latvia and Lithuania.

Hopefully the Spanish warrants will wake up some Western officials to the fact that the disappearance of Parex and Ukio assets was not caused by the Global Financial Crisis and the EBRD is using Western taxpayer money to cover-up for Putin’s money launderers.

Karin Dawisha’s “Putin’s Kleptocracy” links Putin to Parex

Russia scholar Karin Dawisha recently published “Putin’s Kleptocracy.”  It is an excellent book, detailing Vladimir Putin’s ascent from the KGB to the St Petersburg Mafia to the Russian Presidency.  Dawisha links Putin with certain organized crime bosses in St Petersburg who are linked with Parex Bank.  This might cause problems for Latvian officials (general prosecutor, central bank governor, and others) who are fighting to protect Parex because the FBI (as revealed yesterday by the Financial Times and Wall Street Journal) is probing Putin’s money laundering activities.

Now in November 2014, Parex Bank successor Citadele Bank is operating with mostly the same employees and its core business is still serving offshore shell-company accounts for Russians.  Even though the Latvia/EBRD bailout is publicly known to have been fraudulent, the people who signed the deal are not being prosecuted.  Former Latvian Prime Minister Valdis Dombrovskis is now Vice President of the European Commission responsible for the euro.  Former EBRD President Thomas Mirow was not reinstated at the EBRD even though Putin recommended him.  Instead, Mirow is now Chairman of HSH Nordbank.
