"Russia's Investigative committee is now conducting an investigation in the office of PricewaterhouseCoopers in Moscow regarding the persons that are linked with the company's client. Investigative activities are held as usual. PwC fully cooperates with the investigators as part of the probe," the company's representative said.
Earlier TASS reported referring to a source with law enforcement agencies, that the investigation is under way in the office of PwC in the north of Moscow.
"Inspection of documents is going in the company's office as part of pre-investigation check," the source said. He did not elaborate on the reasons behind the inspection.
In Russia PwC provides service in audit, business consulting, as well as tax and legal services to companies of various sectors of economy. PwC has offices in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Kazan, Novosibirsk, Rostov-on-Don, Krasnodar, Voronezh, Vladikavkaz and Ufa. In Russia the company employs more than 2,500 people.
Comment: A respected Wall Street analyst who has been investigating the Clinton Foundation's finances alleges the "Big Four" accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers was a willing participant in a scheme by the Clintons and their associates to become personally enriched by the foundation, a crime known as inurement. "Clinton Foundation filings for all years from inception through 2013 are materially incomplete, inaccurate, misleading and therefore fraudulent," Ortel concludes in his report on PWC's work with the foundation.
WND also reported that before Hillary Clinton completed her first year as President Obama's secretary of state in 2010, Ortel calculates $17 million went missing from Clinton Foundation financial reports. As WND reported May 12, based on Ortel's findings, a prominent lawyer and a top government watchdog in the nation's capital are calling for the Clinton Foundation to be shut down. In his first report, Ortel found what he characterizes as an elaborate system devised by the Clintons to enrich themselves through schemes such as skimming tens of millions of dollars from U.N. levies imposed on airline travelers.
