Investigators Search Finprombank

Investigators on Wednesday searched the offices of Finprombank, one of the country's top 150 lenders.

The search is part of ongoing criminal investigations into individuals with accounts at Finprombank and is not directed at the activity of the bank itself, Finprombank's lawyer, Alexander Kabanov, told ITAR-TASS.

The bank is continuing to work as normal, Kabanov said.
