Bulgaria: Romania’s Petrotel Lukoil Refinery Indicted for Money Laundering

Romanian prosecutors at the Ploiesti Court of Appeals have indicted six senior officials of Petrotel, a refinery of Russia’s Lukoil in Romania, for money-laundering.

The indicted senior officials include Petrotel Director General Andrey Bogdanov, his two deputies Alexey Vointsev and Olga Kuzina, Moldovian national Andrei Rata, member of the Board of Directors of the refinery, Dan Danulescu, Deputy General Manager, and Chief Accountant Dorel Dutu.

On July 9, Romanian prosecutors seized Lukoil assets worth EUR 2 B as part of the money laundering probe at the refinery.

On October 2, 2014, Romanian police, prosecutors, and customs inspectors raided the offices of Lukoil near Ploiesti in an investigation into alleged tax evasion and money laundering estimated at EUR 230 M at that time.
