Ukrainian Lawyer Andrei Portnov has claimed that ex-President of Ukraine Pyotr Poroshenko anticipated that his assets would be seized and cashed out money in a bank as well as reregistered his property, he said via his Telegram channel on Thursday.
Axar.az reports citing TASS.
"Fearing a seizure of accounts and assets, not only did Poroshenko withdrew $34 million in cash from the International Investment Bank but also reregistered 115,000 square meters of property belonging to Kiev’s Kuznya on Rybalsky factory to a business he controls right before the decision to seize his assets was made, somehow bypassing secrecy of investigation," wrote Portnov who served as deputy head of staff for ex-President Viktor Yanukovich.
The lawyer vowed to initiate a "seizure of the property ‘re-stolen’ by Poroshenko" and well as launch criminal proceedings against the former president for violating the secrecy of investigation, "which led to these assets being temporarily lost."
On September 17, Portnov announced that Kiev’s Pechersky District Court seized property and corporate rights of the Kuznya on Rybalsky factory, which the lawyer described as one of the key assets for Poroshenko.
