Former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych convinces the EU Court, that the charges against him are politically motivated, and in his European accounts there are much more funds frozen than required by the Prosecutor General.
This is stated in the report publicly announced today during Luxembourg hearing on the "case of Yanukovych against EU Council," writes Deutsche Welle.
The document states that the arguments to cancel the EU sanctions imposed against former Ukrainian President in March 2014, Yanukovych's lawyers referred to the Court in Luxembourg, on behalf of his client.
According to the fugitive president, all charges were made against him by Ukraine, are politically motivated, and there is no progress in criminal cases against him.
Yanukovych also claims about "excessive" amount of frozen funds on his accounts. The ex-president insists that the amount of funds frozen in the accounts exceeds the amount of misappropriation of property, which is attributed to him.
