EU court will announce ruling on sanctions against Yanukovych, Kliuyev in Sept
The General Court of Justice of the European Union (Luxembourg) will announce verdict on the claims of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, his son Oleksandr and ex-secretary of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) Andriy Kliuyev on the abolition of sanctions imposed against them in 2014 in September 2016, according to the Yevropeiska Pravda (European Truth) online edition, with reference to court representative Balazs Lehoczki.
"I can tell you that the General Court at 15:00 on September 15 will announce a ruling on the cases of former President Yanukovych, his son Oleksandr and Andriy Kliuyev," he said.
The court representative added the former Ukrainian high-ranking officials would not take part in the hearing, since, as a rule, the parties do not come to Luxembourg for the announcement of the ruling.
As reported, on March 5, 2014 the EU froze the assets of 18 Ukrainian citizens suspected of misappropriation of public funds and involvement in violations of human rights in Ukraine. The decision "provides for the freezing of funds and economic resources of certain individuals, defined responsible for misappropriation of Ukrainian state funds, and those responsible for violations of human rights in Ukraine, individuals and legal entities, affiliated organizations in order to consolidate and support the rule of law and respect for human rights in Ukraine."
