MICEX Data Seized

MOSCOW -- The Prosecutor General's Office has confiscated the Moscow Interbank Currency Exchange database containing the accounts of private and corporate investors who worked on the treasury bill market over the past two years, sources close to MICEX management said Thursday.

A MICEX official said the Prosecutor General's Office was investigating the incomes of senior government officials. The data base was seized Monday.

This isn't the first time the prosecutor's office has investigated state officials' incomes at the exchange, the official added.
