Zhevago believes the case against him is politically motivated and expects it to be closed or taken to court.
A court in the city of Chambéry, France, decided on a hearing on the extradition of 48-year-old businessman Konstantin Zhevago to Ukraine – the request of the Ukrainian side was rejected. This was announced on Thursday, March 30, by his press service.
“The decision of the French court confirms the lack of sufficient grounds for extradition and proves the groundlessness of the allegations. I hope that the DBR and the Prosecutor General’s Office will finally listen to my arguments and follow the law on further consideration of this case,” said Zhevago.
In 2019, Zhevago was reported to be suspected of possible involvement in the theft of UAH 2.5 billion from the Finance and Credit Bank and was placed on the international wanted list.
At the end of December 2022, Zhevago was detained in France in Courchevel and placed under arrest pending consideration of Ukraine’s extradition request.
In early January, a French court released him from custody on bail of 1 million euros.
The Economic Court of Kyiv decided to seize the assets of the owner of the bank Finance and Credit Konstantin Zhevago as part of a case for damages in the amount of almost 46 billion hryvnias.
The court arrested the helicopter of the ex-People’s Deputy, the shareholder of the bank JSC Bank Finance and Credit Konstantin Zhevago.
