Zurich Prosecutor’s Office has seized Swiss accounts of Azerbaijani businessman Telman Ismailov, APA reports citing Kommersant.

The amount deposited in Swiss banks is not revealed.

At the same time, the Prosecutor's Office and the applicant agree that he used assets and accounts to launder money received as a result of fraud in Russia.

Telman Ismailov, who moved with his family to Montenegro, was declared bankrupt in Russia. In November 2017, the businessman was charged with organizing two murders, and then he was declared wanted by Interpol. 

He is also suspected of fraud associated with the seizure of the property of the debtor, the actual reduction of assets to the detriment of creditors, as well as squandering of assets.
