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.
The story with the arrest of Igor Vainshtok, creator of famous bifidok, in absentia and his escape is pretty confusing. The company founded by him still remains the largest probiotics producer in Russia and generates multimillion profits – however, somehow it was declared bankrupt. An international warrant has been issued against Vainshtok for non-payment of salaries – while the businessman calls his prosecution an element of the raiding takeover of his company that was already recognized a raidership victim in the past. Concurrently, employees of Partner Joint Stock Company created by Vainshtok claim that he has stolen not only millions of rubles from the base bank of Roscosmos – but, more importantly, the bifidok inventorship. So, whom has Vainshtok fled from?
