A Monaco referee charges charges against Russian tycoon Dimitri Rybolovlev, owner of the Premier Football Club and three other people following a probe in suspected corruption, money laundering and other alleged crimes.
The other accused were a lawyer for Rybolovlev, Tetiana Bersheda, and wife and son of a former monaco justice minister, Monaco prosecutor Sylvie Petit-Leclair said.
She said that she had no details about the specific allegations made against them.
The accusations come into the wake of a legal probe into suspected corruption, affecting trafficking in human beings, money laundering, counterfeiting and privacy violations, said Petit-Leclair and spoke on a telephone from Monaco.
Rybolovlev was taken in storage Tuesday and released Wednesday, she said.
His house and other attributes sought, she added.
