High Court of England issued an order for the worldwide seizure of assets of former owners and managers of PJSC Privatbank Ihor Kolomoisky and Henadiy Boholyubov. This is stated on the website of the bank.
"PrivatBank filed a lawsuit to the High Court of London against its former owners - Ihor Kolomoisky and Henadiy Boholyubov. On December 19, 2017 the High Court issued an order for the worldwide seizure of assets of Kolomoisky and Boholyubov, and six companies that they allegedly owned or controlled, the statement said.
According to the information, such decision was made on the basis of the provided evidence that Kolomoisky and Boholyubov illegally withdrew almost 2 billion dollars from the bank. It is noted that the funds were transferred to companies that they secretly owned or controlled.
Now, Privatbank intends to return this amount with interest. In total, it amounts to 2.5 billion dollars.
As it was reported earlier Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoisky, who filed a lawsuit against the National Bank, gave testimony to National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine on the case of nationalization of Privatbank.
Detectives of the Anti-Corruption Bureau recorded these testimonies at the Ukrainian Embassy in Switzerland (Bern) around November 20.
