Property and Accounts of Ex-Minister Klymenko ‘Frozen’
Tetiana Zhukovska, the attorney of ex-Minister for Revenue and Duties Oleksandr Klymenko who is believed to be one of the main associates of Yanukovych claims that his property and accounts in Ukraine have been frozen. She told this in the press center of Ukrayinski Novyny, refusing to reveal the total cost of the assets. According to her, this freezing was unlawful.
The attorney highlights that the court has twice returned the motion to start investigation in absentia against Klymenko to the Prosecutor General’s Office (GPU), claiming that he was not officially declared suspect.
Interpol suspended the decision to put ex-Minister on an international wanted list.
On August 19, Klymenko informed that Pecherskyi District Court of Kyiv had refused the GPU to launch investigation in absentia against him. It planned to investigate the embezzlement of ₴616 million by Klymenko when he was the State Tax Service Chief.
In June, Klymenko stated that the EU has lifted sanctions against him.
