Businessman Dolynsky to file $1 mln lawsuit to ECHR against Ukraine for loss of control over Zhytomyr confectionery factory
KYIV. Jan 12 (Interfax-Ukraine) – The lawyers of businessman Denys Dolynsky intend in January 2018 to file a lawsuit with the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) against Ukraine to recover $1 million in damages for the loss of control over Zhytomyr confectionery factory.
"My lawyers will file a lawsuit with the European Court of Human Rights to compensate for the losses that officials inflicted on me, taking away my share in the enterprise. This month an action will be filed to compensate for my losses, the sum exceeds $1 million. The matter concerns reimbursement for the value of my property rights, not charter capital," he said at a press conference at Interfax-Ukraine.
According to the businessman, the lawyers representing his interests through the European court will also demand the execution of the court ruling recognizing the property rights of Ihor Boiko and other minor owners.
"We have defended the ownership of the enterprise. There are two rulings of Zhytomyr District Administrative Court, made in the spring of 2016, that have come into force. They say the integrated property complex is 97% owned by Ihor Boiko, the rest belongs to other participants in the enterprise. The decisions have entered into legal force, but the state of Ukraine does not fulfill them. Today police officers physically do not allow us to the enterprise as the owners of this company," Dolynsky noted.
According to him, the businessman as an investor joined the enterprise in 2012 with about UAH 800,000, becoming an official founder. Dolynsky estimates his share in the company's capital at 1%. The company has about 20 co-founders.
