The State Bureau of Investigations has opened four new criminal cases against ex-President Petro Poroshenko, according to statements by businessman Ihor Kolomoysky. His lawyer Ihor Golovan said this during a briefing on Friday, July 10, according to Ukrinform.

"The State Security Bureau opened four proceedings against Poroshenko. Mr. Kolomoisky came up with a standard set and, of course, his statements concern Privatbank that allegedly President Petro Poroshenko hindered the business of Privatbank, that supposedly Poroshenko divulged Privatbank's bank secrecy. And, as usual, there are power abuse, and money laundering," he said.

In addition, according to the lawyer, one of Kolomoisky’s statements says that Poroshenko allegedly caused damage to Privatbank by divulging bank secrets.

"That is, when reporting on Privatbank, truthful information harmed the then shareholders of Privatbank," Golovan said.

He believes that these criminal proceedings have no prospects. The State Bureau of Investigation has not yet commented on this matter.

As we reported before, in 2019, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine lifted parliamentary immunity. This process went through a committee chaired by Iryna Venedyktova. According to her, pressure was put on her to prevent this decision.
