India’s financial crimes authority on Friday issued a justification notice to Xiaomi’s India unit, its officials and three banks in connection with an investigation that found the smartphone maker was making illegal money transfers to foreign entities.

The Directorate General of Enforcement has issued a notice under the Foreign Exchange Control Act, accusing Xiaomi of making illegal money transfers worth INR 55.51 billion ($673.2 million).

Xiaomi did not immediately respond to Reuters’ request for comment.

An Indian court in April dismissed a Chinese smartphone maker’s claim for seizure of 55.51 billion rupees.

Xiaomi’s assets in India were frozen last year by the General Directorate of Enforcement after the company allegedly made illegal transfers to foreign companies disguised as royalty payments.

The company has previously said that all royalty payments are legal and that it will “continue to do whatever it takes to protect its reputation and profits.”
