Ukraine's police didn't provide evidence to prove the suspect is connected to money laundering
13 million Swiss francs worth of bank accounts that were frozen in July 23, 2015 will become accessible to the Ukrainian judge charged with money laundering, Deutsche Welle reports.
On July 18, Robert Wallner, Prosecutor General of Liechtenstein, said that the court decided to lift the freeze on Ukrainian judge's accounts, because Ukrainian law enforcement authorities didn't provide any proof his money was obtained through illegal means.
"The judge lifted the freeze on the money with our consent", Robert Wallner declared.
Artur Yemelianov, judge of the Supreme Economic Court of Ukraine, and his wife were beneficiaries of the offshore company, registered in Panama. They are both suspected of corruption.
Liechtenstein law enforcement agencies state the illegality of funds has to be proved by the country, where the illegal money wasw gained. The Ukrainian party says it didn't receive any legal information from Liechtenstein, which would allow Ukraine to provide proofs on the suspect's money laundering schemes.
