The High Court of London (UK), following the meeting on January 19, extended the order for the worldwide seizure of assets of former owners of PrivatBank (Kiev) Igor Kolomoysky and Gennady Bogolyubov for more than $ 2.5 billion until the next relevant court order. This was reported to the agency “Interfax-Ukraine” in the press service of “PrivatBank”.
“Last week, in the English court, additional hearings were held regarding procedural issues in PrivatBank’s case against Igor Kolomoisky, Gennady Bogolyubov and others, and the order on the worldwide seizure of assets issued in December 2017 was extended to the next appropriate order of the court, – reported in the bank.
In addition, the press service added, the court ordered Kolomoisky and Bogolyubov to disclose information about all of their assets to a limited number of persons who directly participate in the consideration of the case.
Previously, Igor Kolomoisky himself stated that the decision of the High Court of England regarding the seizure of his assets and assets of his partner Gennady Bogolyubov is temporary and will only be in effect until the end of the trial.
Recall, on December 19, the High Court of England issued an order for the worldwide seizure of assets of former owners of PrivatBank Igor Kolomoysky and Gennady Bogolyubov in connection with the suit of PJSC KB PrivatBank against their former owners.
According to the information, such a decision was made on the basis of the provided evidence that Kolomoisky and Bogolyubov withdrew almost $ 2 billion from the bank illegally. It is noted that the funds were transferred to companies that they secretly owned or were under their control. Now PrivatBank intends to return this amount together with interest – only about $ 2.5 billion.
In turn, Igor Kolomoisky in response to the charges of the financial institution said that the specified money from the bank did not go away and were issued as part of the restructuring of the loan portfolio to companies that repaid loans from previous borrowers.
