The investigators want to give access to information constituting banking secrecy. Such opinion in interview to the newspaper “Izvestiya” told the head of the Investigative Committee Alexander Bastrykin. He believes that this information should be obtained not only in criminal cases but also on the materials of pre-investigation checks.

In his opinion, the people against whom checks, “have taken active steps to conceal their property”. Bastrykin believes that the law “On banks and banking activities” we need to make changes. As an additional punishment Bastrykin proposed to confiscate corrupt assets.

Banking secrecy includes information about deposits, accounts and transactions of customers and information about them. Now such information is provided to courts, bailiffs, tax, investigative and customs authorities, as well as the Pension Fund, the Agency for Deposit insurance and the chamber.

A list of entities with access to Bank secret, is constantly expanding. For example, in early 2019 the access to banking secrecy have decided to provide the Federal Antimonopoly service (FAS). In February, the head of the Central Bank Elvira Nabiullina admitted the possibility of disclosure to law enforcement of information containing Bank secret, the investigation of the withdrawal of assets from financial institutions.
