In the United States, federal judge proposed the date May 7, 2018 to consider the case of American political technologist Paul Manafort, who was a consultant to former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, and another person involved in the case - Rick Gates. This is reported by Reuters.
US District Judge Amy Berman Jackson scheduled a hearing on Monday, November 6, to consider the proposed trial date.
We recall that in the US Manafort and his partner Gates are accused of 12 episodes. The prosecution incriminates them with conspiracy against the US, conspiracy to launder money, acting as a foreign agent without the necessary registration, as well as not reporting on accounts in foreign banks. Also it is a question of his possible business relations with the ex-president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych.
Earlier we informed that former campaign chairman for President Donald Trump Paul Manafort has three US passports each under the different number as The Guardian reported.
Moreover, Manafort and his associate Rick Gates who worked on the election campaign of Trump are connected with the Russian and Ukrainian oligarchs that paid them the significant amounts of money.
It is still hardly to estimate the funds of Manafort and their amount is from 19 to 136 million dollars.
