The ex-head of the Ukrspetsexport arms-selling company, Serhy Bondarchuk, was arrested in London, Prosecutor General Yury Lutsenko writs in Facebook March 17.
“London is no longer a safe haven for runaway corrupt high-level Ukrainian officials. As a coordinated action of prosecution and its British colleagues another ‘hero’ of Ukraine, the ex-head of Ukrspetsexport, was arrested in London March 15,” Lutsenko writes in Facebook.
The final say in Bondarchuk’s extradition will have the High Court. Ukraine’s prosecutors provided convincing evidence of the official’s guilt.
Bondarchuk is suspected of walking away with $7.5 million.
