Fraudsters write off about UAH 42 mln from Sanofi Aventis Ukraine's accounts
Fraudsters have written off near UAH 42 million from accounts of Sanofi Aventis Ukraine, part of global Sanofi pharmaceutical company.
"Sanofi Aventis Ukraine has become a victim of fraudsters who wrote off near UAH 42 million using the unlawful court ruling via forgery of documents," the company said in a statement sent to Interfax-Ukraine.
The company said that due to the fraud along with negligence of representatives of the judicial system and the State Enforcement Service large obstacles for normal operations of the company in Ukraine have been created.
"Not only the company, but also Ukraine's reputation as the state fighting for attraction of foreign investment and claiming it is protected is suffering," Sanofi Aventis Ukraine said.
The pharmaceutical company said that it is taking all legal measures to protect its rights. The company expressed hope that competent authorities will quickly react not to allow the transfer of seized funds to the accounts of the fraudsters and punish the guilty persons in line with the Ukrainian legislation, international agreements on protection of foreign investment.
The company said that this situation could affect the further plans of the pharmaceutical company to develop business in Ukraine.
