During the court session on the criminal cases of the former senior official of the Head Investigation Department of the Azerbaijani Interior Ministry Haji Mammadov and the criminal gang headed by him, Mammadov's nephew, former Deputy Director of the Sabunchu Branch of the International Bank, Rovshan Aliyev stressed that Department Chief of the Prosecutor-General's Office of Azerbaijan Rovshan Aliyev, who was killed by the gang, received $1 million through the bank for hiding a large number of crimes. The court session on the cases of Mammadov and his gang comprising of 25 persons, is held in the Court of Heinous Crimes of Azerbaijan under the Chair of Judge Ali Seyfaliyev, Trend reports.
Aliyev stressed that before his assassination, Rovshan Aliyev came to him and made consultations regarding the bank transfers. He was interested in opening a bank account. During the talks he said that he helped a large foreign company to hide the facts of deviation from taxes. The head of the company promised to transfer $1 mln to his name. I explained the procedures of opening a bank account and thereafter, he left. Aliyev said.
In addition, he emphasized that earlier Majid Mammadov, who was kidnapped by the gang, had taken a credit amounting to $30.000 from the International Bank. But during the credit period, the interest rate for the credit wasn't paid. I phoned to the person who asked to give credit to Majid Mammadov and told him about this issue. Till Mammadov's release, that person paid off the interest rate of the credit, Aliyev added.
