The detention of Serhiy Pereloma, formerly Deputy CEO of Naftogaz Ukraine [in photo], on suspicion of embezzling funds from state-owned Eastern Iron Ore Plant is being seen as part of “finally cracking the whip over the anti-corruption agenda”.
LONDON, April 21, 2017 (UBO) – In response to an announcement by Naftogaz Ukraine that its former Deputy CEO Serhiy Pereloma has been detained on suspicion of embezzling money from a related company, Bluebay Asset Management analyst Timothy Ash said the following at 11:27 today:
FYI....so nothing to do with Naftogaz specifically...but obviously the key issue therein still seems to the challenges over corporate governance.
Guess the government will want to sell all this as them finally cracking the whip over the anti-corruption agenda, which also follows the action taken against Nasirov, the head of the state fiscal service.
