However, as they say in deputy inquiry, “ the suffered investors believe that investigation agencies bodies and operative control undertake not all necessary measures for revealing guilty and true establishments in this business “. According to the member of parliament, received of mass-media, the trust of citizens to the financial project has been based on impression that as the actual guarantor of the project the Ekaterinburg bank of Open Society " has acted; มเํ๊24. ru “ through which passed all financial operations “ Global Gejming of the Expo “.

that the company which has received scandalous popularity working with clients under the gambling licence, had really a direct bearing on Open Society “ มเํ๊24. ru “ confirms also a management of this bank. However, as the chief executive of this establishment Boris Djakonov in interview to the newspaper " has declared; Kommersant “ (N 153, 19. 08. 06), “ Global “ was the usual client of bank. However, judging by the given mass-media, it was a question of joint business: referring to the letter of Kalinichenko of the newspaper have informed that it was the holder 20 - a percentage share holding of Banka24. ru. According to the newspaper “ Kommersant “ It even held in this bank a post of the chief of department of conversion operations.

The tripartite agreement between trader Kalinichenko, the company " has been thus entered into; Global Gejming of the Expo “ and Open Society “ มเํ๊24. ru “.

Meanwhile as wrote newspapers, Kalinichenko accuses in happened the partners in business - head Banka24. ru Sergey Lapshin, the general director of Open Company “ Incorporated group of traders “ Sergey Yefimov and the general director of Open Company “ Global Gejming of the Expo “ Felix Porina. Both in Nikolay Sapozhnikova`s deputy inquiry, and in the newspaper publication “ Kommersant “ (“ Global swindle “ N 153, 19. 08. 06) Alexey Kalinichenko`s ostensibly directed by it in law enforcement bodies the statement, that from the account " is mentioned; Global Gejming of the Expo “ in Banke24. ru large sums of money have been illegally removed.

In inquiry of deputy Sapozhnikova the attention to the question on use of Bankom24 also is brought. ru the considerable money resources invested by citizens in the financial project for operations in market Forex.

But results of this check are unknown.

And here questions to Banku24. ru have arisen. It is known that the Central Bank of the Russian Federation has led a policy of rigid control over activity of the Russian banks. But as to Open Society “ มเํ๊24. ru “ neither about a response at it the licence, nor about departmental claims to this credit institution it was audible nothing. And time so the citizens opening in this bank of the account for participation in game on Forex, did not have bases to doubt reliability of the projects connected with this bank. Whether it will be possible to the suffered investors to return at least a part of the disappeared savings?

the Newspaper “ Kommersant “ referring to experts estimates these chances sceptically. However, as one of applicants, " has expressed; if the consequence manages to prove participation of bank in our problems, maybe, and we can return money “ (N 153, 19. 08. 06). About Banke24. ru it is known that it has been founded in Ekaterinburg in 1992 and till 2003 was called “ Uralkontaktbank “. The Chairman of board of directors of bank Sergey Lapshin posesses 59,47 percent of shares, to chief executive Boris Djakonovu - 20 percent.

About Bank 24. ru also it is known that this bank had in due time the conflict to the Ekaterinburg deputy A. Habarovym which have found hung up in the pre-trial detention centre chamber.

Certainly, simple decisions of questions of the refund enclosed in a financial pyramid, for Russia are not characteristic. However encourages already that this scandal story is taken on control in profile committee of the State Duma, and heads of supervising departments are informed on it.
