More details revealed on Ukranian ex-official detained in Panama

Vladyslav Kaskiv accussed of public funds embezzlement

New details in detaining Vladyslav Kaskiv in Latin America.

According to Ukraine's Deputy Prosecutor General Yevhen Yelin, Ukrainian ex-official has been detained in Panama while he was attempting to flee to Costa Rica.

The authorities of Costa Rica rejected Kaskiv's request to enter the territory of the country. Border officers from Panama later figured out Kaskiv was on Interpol wanting list and immediately detained the runaway Ukrainian.

Ukraine has already addressed Panama colleagues concerning the extradition of Kaskiv. Ukrainian investigators also asked to keep him under arrest until the request is being considered.

Vladyslav Kaskiv, a former state investment agency chief, has been on the wanted list since March 2016. The ex-official is being suspected of public funds embezzlement. In 2012, Kaskiv signed a fake deal with Spain's Gas Natural Fenosa, allegedly for constructing LNG-terminal. Jordi Sarda Bonvehi, who had signed on behalf of the company, later turned out to be a ski instructor from Barcelona. Gas Natural top management said Bonvehi did not work for the company and was not authorized to sign the deal.
