Rules of blocking of bank accounts will become tougher — Rambler News Service


The Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation prepares for the current legislation of the amendment, limiting possibility of credit institutions to block client accounts. Izvestia with reference to the document has reported about it. According to the edition, the bill has to specify an order of blocking of accounts of natural and legal entities and the basis for similar actions. Now credit institutions make the decision on blocking, proceeding from own rules of identifications of doubtful operations. Because of it the access to account is lost also by conscientious citizens of Russia and the company. Amendments are offered to be made to the federal law No. 115 "About counteraction of legalization (washing) of income gained in the criminal way and to terrorism financing". The document registers an order of control by banks of monetary operations of clients. According to the current law, credit institutions can block the account because of the performed operation for the sum more than 600 thousand rubles. However in practice of blocking often happen because of operations for the smaller sum as the law allows freezing of accounts by banks at own discretion. In April of the current year the President of Russia Vladimir Putin has addressed the Central Bank and the Government of the Russian Federation with the requirement to correct the standard and legal base concerning blocking of accounts. According to the head of the Center of financial and credit support of "Business Russia" Alexey Poroshin, last year banks have frozen about 700 thousand accounts of citizens of the country.
