Court rules to seize E-Pay payment system accounts for aiding DPR-LPR militants

The Kyiv Pechersk District Court has ruled to seize funds kept in bank accounts and cards of E-Pay payment system, as well as its management for assisting militants of the so-called Donetsk People`s Republic (DPR) and Luhansk People`s Republic (LPR).
As stated in a number of court decisions published in the Unified State Register of Court Decisions, the Pechersk court issued such ruling at the request of the Central Department of the Security Service of Ukraine in Kyiv and Kyiv region.
The investigation claims that in the period from May 2014 to the present date, the management of E-Pay payment system has facilitated the terrorist activity through the controlled individuals (about 45 people) who were residing in the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions and registered as entrepreneurs with the DPR tax authorities, in violation of the National Bank`s requirements to suspend any financial transactions in the temporarily occupied territories.
The company is said to have ensured operations and maintenance of a number of payment terminals that operate on the basis of Flashpay banking payment system (owned by Familny bank), as well as payment systems such as Finansovyi Mir (Kyiv) and City Pay (Kyiv, Terra-line Internet provider), to which E-Pay is a party.
It is reported that E-Pay managers were using Pegas Krym software, the official representative of Russian company PS Pegas. Through such terminals DPR and LPR militants could replenish accounts of their mobile phones, transfer funds to card accounts and carry out other payments necessary to maintain activity of the DPR and LPR terrorist organizations.
