FORMER PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE AND FORMER GOVERNOR OF THE COUNTRY’S CENTRAL BANK HAVE AVOIDED AN ENGLISH COURT BATTLE ON THE GROUNDS THAT THEY ARE PROTECTED BY STATE IMMUNITY

On 8 October, the Law Society Gazette reported that Petro Poroshenko and Valeria Gontareva are accused of conspiracy during attempts to tackle a national banking crisis, and the claim arises from events that allegedly took place as part of the nationalisation and bail-in of PrivatBank, Ukraine’s largest bank, 2014-2016, when it was discovered to have a multi-billion-dollar capital shortfall.  Both respondents deny all allegations of wrongdoing.
