Real estate of “crab king” Oleg Kan arrested in Vladivostok

Buildings and land plots in the center of the capital of Primorye belonging to Far Eastern businessman Oleg Kan, who is hiding from the investigation, have been arrested, local media reported today.

“Investigative bodies in the historical part of Vladivostok have arrested property belonging to Oleg Kan. The buildings of the Bolshoy and Maly GUMs, 15 land plots located in the center of Vladivostok, office premises and more than 476 thousand shares of the Vladivostok GUM Trading House JSC were arrested. The market value of the seized assets may amount to more than 3.5 billion rubles. “- said in the message” Vesti Primorya “.

Officially, the Investigation Department of the TFR and the FSB in Primorye do not comment on this information.

We will remind, on February 5 last year, the Khabarovsk Regional Court granted the request of the investigation for the absentee arrest of the Sakhalin businessman Oleg Kan, known as the “crab king”. The TFR calls Kan the organizer of the 2010 murder of entrepreneur Valery Pkhidenko, who was also involved in fishing.

Oleg Kan is also accused of organizing the smuggling of live crab from Russia to China.

In March last year, the Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk City Court seized shares in three LLCs – Moneron, Kuril Universal Complex and Primorskaya Fishing Company, as well as their cars, apartments, fishing vessels and non-residential premises. The investigation considers Oleg Kan to be the owner of the companies that own the quotas for catching more than 9 thousand tons of crabs in the Far East.
