Rybolovlev Detained for Questioning in Monaco
Bloomberg, and several European news outlets, reported today that Dimtry Rybolovlev was detained in Monaco for questioning related to potential corruption charges. Rybolovlev’s actions have previously caused the resignation of Monaco’s Justice Minister Philippe Narmino when his lawyer Tetiana Bersheda turned her mobile phone over to police because she was accused of using it to make illegal recordings of her conversations with another lawyer, Tania Rappo. All of these questions stem from Rybolovlev’s unending conflict with his former advisor Yves Bouvier. Bloomberg continues:
- “Rybolovlev’s lawyers, Hervé Temime and Thomas Giaccardi, said their client was interrogated based on information retrieved from his lawyer’s phone, something that is the subject of an appeal in Monaco. The attorneys also said they plan to lodge a complaint over the breach of secrecy in the case.”
