What’s new? Kirill Doronin, the detained founder of the Finiko Ponzi scheme, expressed his willingness to testify against his accomplices and has testified against 44 of his subordinates. He stated this in a petition to the investigator in charge of the case in Moscow, “Biznes Online” reports.

What did Doronin say? According to the suspect, 44 people from his “company” did not follow the recommendations of the profit generation system and accepted cash from investors. Doronin added that he did not support such a system himself. His testimonial list included already known Ponzi scheme representatives Ilgiz Shakirov, Dina Gabdullina, Lilia Nurieva, Karim Siraev, Andrey Galushchenko, Dana Batyrshina, and others.

“With respect to each of the above-mentioned persons, I am ready to provide both incriminating testimony and additional evidence confirming the illegality of the actions of these individuals,” Doronin's petition says.

What does the investigation say? Lawyers believe that after the list of accomplices has been made public their client may be subjected to more lenient conditions of pre-trial detention. However, such a development is unlikely: the investigation is unlikely to take such action because Doronin's petition does not admit his guilt. The investigation added that the list does not include the organizers who devised the scheme and the key figures involved in the withdrawal of funds abroad.
