Quote: „Under the procedural guidance of the Office of the Prosecutor General, a well-known businessman suspected of legalising property obtained fraudulently was served with a notice of suspicion of committing another crime related to organising a contract killing (Art. 27.4, Art. 15.2, paragraphs 11, 12 of Art. 115.2 of the Criminal Code).“

Details: The source of Ukrainska Pravda reports that the suspect is Kolomoisky.

The investigation stated that the oligarch ordered the murder of a law firm director in revenge for „failure to comply with the requirements for annulment and invalidation of decisions of the general meeting of shareholders of the open Joint-Stock Company“.

To fulfil the order, Kolomoiskyi attracted members of a gang that specialises in committing serious and particularly serious crimes, including physical violence against competitors.

The assailants attacked the director, stabbing him in vital organs. The victim lived.

Now, prosecutors and investigators are carrying out urgent investigative and procedural actions aimed at exposing all persons involved in the commission of the crime.

Kolomoiskyi is already in custody because of another case.

Background:

The Security Service of Ukraine (SSU), the Bureau of Economic Security and the Office of the Prosecutor General served Kolomoiskyi with notice of suspicion under Articles 190 and 209 of the Criminal Code: fraud and legalisation (laundering) of property obtained by criminal means. Subsequently, Kolomoiskyi was served with two more notices of suspicion: about the withdrawal of a total of UAH 15 billion (about US$377.36 million) from PrivatBank.
Kolomoiskyi was given a preventive measure in the form of detention for a period of 60 days with the possibility of bail in the amount of almost UAH 510 million (about US$12.83 million). Subsequently, the amount of collateral was increased to UAH 3.89 billion (about US$97.86 million).
