Equity has successfully represented former Ukrainian Minister of Infrastructure Volodymyr Omelyan before the High Anti-Corruption Court of Ukraine.

According to Equity, “the High Anti-Corruption Court of Ukraine found Volodymyr Omelyan not guilty of committing a crime under paragraph 2 of Article 211 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. [The former] Minister was acquitted in connection with the lack of mandatory elements of the corpus delicti, in particular: the object of the crime, the objective and subjective sides of the corpus delicti.”

The firm reported that, “according to the indictment, Volodymyr Omelyan had issued a regulatory legal act that reduced state budget revenues contrary to the law, and the subject of such actions were budgetary funds on an especially large scale. The trial lasted about a year and became one of the most high-profile in Ukraine. The decision of the High Anti-Corruption Court of Ukraine is one of the first acquittals among cases of national importance.”

Equity’s team included Partners Olexandr Lysak and Taras Poshyvanyuk and Attorneys Maksym Saliy and Rodion Kokosh.
