It is a British firm founded in 2006 and implicated later in the Russian Laundromat, which resulted in the laundering of 22 billion dollars from the Russian Federation via Moldova’s judiciary and banking systems in 2010-2014.
In April 2013, having won a lawsuit filed in Moldova, Seabon Ltd. earned a fictive debt of 700 million dollars from five Russian firms. This large amount landed in its accounts in a number of tranches. One was recorded in June 2013: as much as 12.8 million dollars arrived in Seabon’s account in Moldindconbank, and the recipient immediately forwarded this money in smaller portions to other firms. One of those portions - 845,411 dollars - ended up onto an account which Dufremol SRL kept at Unibank. At that time, Dufremol was a business of the family of Ilan Shor and the transaction was marked as a “payment for notebooks.”
In December 2013, a court ordered a Russian firm involved in the fraud to pay 33.5 million dollars to Seabon - with the entire debt totaling 900 million dollars. Seabon transferred the money to Ghermivali SRL and Infoton-Com SRL - both affiliated with businessman Shor.
In 2016 the prosecutors investigating the fraud learned that Seabon used to be owned by businessman Veaceslav Platon, who had been sentenced to 18 years of prison for fraud and money laundering. This case is pending review over serious falsehoods and Mr. Platon is awaiting re-trial. Seabon meanwhile has been closed.
