Legal Alliance Company Defended the Interests of the Client in the Case of Seizure
On January 25th, 2018 Kyiv Court of Appeal by its decision confirmed the legal position of the lawyers of criminal law practice of Legal Alliance Company, which represented the interests of the client in the case of seizure of the property of the company.
As a result, the arrest was imposed on funds in the amount of several million hryvnias on the bank account, as well as spending operations.
The cancelled decision of the investigative judge of the Pechersk District Court of Kyiv, at the request of the General Prosecutor’s Office of Ukraine, was based on several grounds. The first of these is the need to preserve physical evidence, despite the fact that non-cash funds do not meet the criteria for physical evidence under Article 98 of the Code of Criminal Procedure of Ukraine. The second is the possibility of confiscating property, although this measure cannot be applied to a legal entity in the criminal proceedings that took place.
Thus, thanks to Legal Alliance Company the groundless arrest was lifted and the company got the opportunity to continue its activities.
Representation of the client’s interests was carried out by Illya Kostin, partner and attorney-at-law of Legal Alliance.
