Almaty. September 17. KazTAG - On September 14, 2020, the Swiss federal authorities returned to Kazakhstan over 390 million KZT, withdrawn abroad by members of the organized criminal community in the “Khorgoss case”, reports the General Prosecutor's Office.
These funds were in the account of a foreign company in a Swiss bank owned by one of the active members of the criminal community, Magzum Abdraliyev, who has been on the international wanted list since 2012.
Work on the return of Abdraliev’s criminal assets from Switzerland has been carried out since 2018.
