BELGRADE, April 30 (RAPSI) - Since early 2012, the Montenegrin police have received 22 requests from the Moscow Interpol Office to check Russians suspected of money laundering, head of Montenegro's Interpol Office Dejan Djurovic told the Dnevne Novine newspaper.

"The Russian police suspect that some Russians launder money by investing in property in Europe. We are checking such investments in Montenegro as part of an Interpol investigation. Montenegro's police are inspecting Russians upon Moscow's request," Djurovic told the newspaper.

He said the Russians who are being inspected are suspected of having accumulated illegal income through fraud or by accepting bribes in Russia, and that some of them are involved in organized crime.

There is visa-free travel between Russia and Montenegro. The legislation of the smallest republic of the former Yugoslavia is benevolent to foreign investors.  International experts believe Montenegro is one of the most favorable countries for Russians who want to launder their illegal income.
