A high-ranking executive of the Russian gas company Novatek has been arrested by the US authorities for tax evasion, embezzlement and conspiracy.

The detainee is accused of secret offshore accounts of 93 million dollars, as announced yesterday, Thursday, the US Department of Justice.

According to the department, a federal jury in Fort Myers, Florida, yesterday, Wednesday, approved an indictment, accusing Jetfei, a businessman operating in the said state, of misappropriation of US funds.

He has two passports, both from the US and Russia.

According to the indictment, from 2005 to 2016, the accused participated in a conspiracy to defraud the United States by concealing the fact that he was the owner and controlled significant offshore assets, while he did not declare income of millions of dollars and did not pay taxes for them.

Jetfey, who served as Novatek's chief financial officer from 2003 to 2014, did not answer phone calls. Novatek declined to comment.

Starting in 2005, Jetfey reportedly opened the first two separate bank accounts in Switzerland to hold his assets, which at one time had a total financial value of more than $ 93 million, according to the US Department of Justice.

He was appointed Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Novatek in July 2010.

Jetfei was scheduled to appear before US Judge Douglas Fraser in Florida yesterday, Thursday, and if convicted, he faces a long prison sentence.
