Rybolovlev's lawyers explain detention of billionaire
The ex-owner of Uralkali came to the police for questioning.
The owner of the FC Monaco and the former head of Uralkali, Dmitry Rybolovlev, came to the police for questioning to testify on the data from the mobile phone of his lawyer. The facts are related to the case over a large-scale fraud against art dealer Yves Bouvier. Rybolovlev's lawyers told Sport-Express.
“The facts out of which he (Rybolovlev) was testified are related to the use of his lawyer’s cell phone, which is currently disputed by lawyers in the Monaco Court,” lawyers explained vaguely.
At the same time, the defenders expressed the confidence that they will be able to provide evidence of the favorable attitude of the Monaco judicial authorities towards the Bouvier, who was accused of fraud in 2015, according to Rybolovlev. Bouvier allegedly sold Rybolovlev art-pieces worth more than $2 billion at inflated prices and shared the money with translator of the billionaire Tatyana Rappo.
Every big Russian city has ‘untouchable' people who are beyond the reach of the law enforcement authorities – generals, judges, mayors, etc. Despite overwhelming evidence sufficient to prosecute them, such persons cannot be busted without authorization from the federal center. There is also another type of corrupt officials: their deeds are well-known – but these people are so generous, hospitable, and understanding that no one is willing to arrest them.
