Andrei Kozlov - Central Banker Murdered

Shot Russia bank chief 'critical' was updated early this morning to “is dead/was murdered.”

It is rumoured that his death is related to his day job - rooting out banks involved in money laundering and other criminal activities.

A quick search on Google (TM preservation note) for murdered Central Bankers does not turn up too many examples in 1st, 2nd or indeed 3rd world countries - Russia is its own case.

Meanwhile just to ensure that “control” is maintained the son of the head of the FSB becomes special adviser to Igor Sechin in his position as Chairman of Rosneft.

Maybe time for the FSB to concentrate less on “control” and more on doing its job.

Googling (TM?) turns up a figure of 95 (non-central) bankers assassinated during the Yeltsin years.

Very country specific, as you say. Banking in Russia is a bit like bullfighting in Spain. No one from anywhere else would consider it.
