Confiscation of FC Metalist in final stage – deputy prosecutor general

The confiscation of the Metalist football club (Kharkiv) is in the final stage, Ukrainian Deputy Prosecutor General Yevhen Yenin has said.

"The confiscation of the Metalist football club is in the final stage, because a respective court decision on confiscation took effect more than two months ago. Now the Justice Ministry must determine a respective body or enterprise to which all facilities belonging to the Metalist football club should be transferred," Yenin said in an interview with Ukraine's Channel 5, which was broadcast on Tuesday, January 9.

In addition, according to him, the Prosecutor General's Office expects to obtain several court decisions in the first quarter of 2018, which will help seize funds obtained illegally on a number of other episodes.
