Diamonds Seized

MOSCOW -- Russian tax police raided the Moscow office of a diamond trading company and seized nearly 400 stones to cover unpaid back taxes of 40 billion rubles (about $7 million), a newspaper reported Thursday.


The Imperial Trading company is one of 127,000 businesses in Moscow that has refused to pay its taxes, a Moscow tax police spokesman said.
