Investohills Vesta denies allegations of violation of Slovak investors' rights
Financial company Investohills Vesta LLC denies accusations of violation of the rights of Slovak investors and seizing of an office building located at 69, Kyrylivska Street in the Podilsky district of Kyiv.
"In October 2020, the company turned to Ambassador of the Slovak Republic in Ukraine Marek Šafin with a request to help in dialogue with investors. In addition, Investohills Vesta sent appeals to parliamentary committees, in particular to one of the subcommittees of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Anti-Corruption Policy, and to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Nevertheless, we have not received proper answers to any of the appeals," Investohills Vesta said in a press release, noting that it also addressed Slovak investors for negotiations.
According to the company, the office building in Podil was illegally withdrawn from the pledge on a loan from OJSC Bancomzvjazok, which is the debtor of Ukrprofbank, and transferred to Frunze 69 LLC and its beneficiaries, citizens of Slovakia Richard and Juraj Duška in 2015.
At the same time, the SBU is investigating into the fact of the withdrawal of assets of Ukrprofbank, in which Investohills Vesta was recognized as a victim, the company said.
At the same time, in March 2020, Investohills Vesta redeemed the rights of claim against the debtors of Ukrprofbank at the public auction held by the Deposit Guarantee Fund, and in October 2020 registered the ownership of the office building as a mortgage holder, which was later canceled by an order of the Ministry of Justice.
"The company filed a claim with the debtor and the new mortgage provider (Frunze 69 LLC) for an amount exceeding UAH 117 million. Since the debtor did not fulfill its loan obligations, the notary Maksym Yudin registered the ownership of Investohills Vesta to the property complex against repayment of debt on a loan," the financial company said.
In addition, according to the decision of the District Administrative Court of Kyiv dated November 10, 2020, the order of the Ministry of Justice was suspended, and on January 21, 2021, the court again terminated the registration actions of the Ministry.
"Private notary V. Bryhida restored ownership of Investohills Vesta on the basis of the ruling of the economic court of Kyiv dated January 21, so his actions cannot be considered illegal. If we make a legal analysis of the events, then it was illegal to cancel the record of the Ministry of Justice about the ownership of Investohills Vesta to the property complex dated October 5, 2020," the company said in the press release.
Investohills Vesta focuses on the fact that it has repeatedly stated its position to each participant of the interested parties, but the other side was not accepted for consideration either during meetings of the ad hoc commission of Verkhovna Rada and was not announced at a press conference," the company said.
