From December 4 to December 7, 2018 the Deputy Prosecutor General Yevhenii Yenin took part the 57th Plenary Session of the Council of Europe Expert Committee on the Evaluation of Measures against Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (MONEYVAL).
On the first day of the event, representatives of Ukraine presented an investigation of the SFMS, which resulted in the disclosure of the global scheme for money laundering. It is worth noting that this case this year is recognized as the winner of the contest "The Best Case of the Egmont Group".
The materia obtained by the Ukrainian division of financial intelligence were used by the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine during the pre-trial investigation in a number of criminal proceedings against former high-ranking officia and their environment. The investigation revealed the flows of illegally withdrawn assets from Ukraine and taken measures to arrest them, and part of the arrested funds (almost 1.5 billion) in 2017 was confiscated by the court in favor of the state.
The presented results of the joint work of Ukrainian competent authorities were highly appreciated by MONEYVAL experts and confirmed their effectiveness in combating money laundering.
