Azarov's pension account arrested again
Ukraine's Prosecutor General's Office (PGO) has said that the pension account of former Prime Minister Mykola Azarov has been arrested again.
"In the course of the pre-trial investigation against Azarov, the PGO appealed again to the investigating judge of Kyiv's Pechersky District Court, who on February 24, 2016, ruled to arrest again the funds on the pension account of Ukraine's Prime Minister Mykola Azarov," the press service of the ministry said on Thursday.
As reported, on March 4, Kyiv's Appeals Court upheld the appeal by Azarov's defense team, saying that the ex-premier's pension could not be arrested, as the court of the first instance arrested not his funds, but his right to receive pension.
On March 10, Social Policy Minister Pavlo Rozenko said that Ukraine will not be paying pension to Azarov any more.
