Operation of a criminal ring engaged for a long time in illegal gemstones trade has been ended in Bashkiria
Operation of a criminal ring engaged for a long time in illegal gemstones trade has been ended in Bashkiria (federal republic in the southern Urals), the press service of the FSB directorate for Bashkiria informed on Thursday. According to the FSB, several residents of Sterlitamak arranged the channel of delivery of diamonds and emeralds from fields in Siberia and the Ural region. The FSB has carried out the operation "check purchase", placing its agent as a wholesale buyer. As a result, three persons have been detained, and natural diamonds and an emerald (total weight 35 grammes, or 150 carats) were seized. On fact of the illegal turnover the republican prosecutor's office has begun a criminal case. Investigation has found that, alongside illegal trade in gemstones in Bashkiria, the group arranged their transportation to the Krasnodar region to be smuggled out to Armenia for cutting. The criminals brought in gems themselves or through couriers. Their close relatives were engaged in this or that way, selling gems or securing the deals, the FSB press service said. The network functioned smoothly for three years.
