We continue to follow the scandal surrounding the criminal case of Timur Abilkassymov, a Kazakh offshore expert and the creator of financial pyramids. After the adviser to the head of the Agency for Regulation and Development of the Financial Market of the Republic of Kazakhstan Timur Abilkassymov was summoned for interrogation to the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine, his lawyer tried to resolve the issue quietly, namely … by offering a bribe to the investigator of the General Prosecutor’s Office of Ukraine.
Than significantly aggravated not only the position of the client, but also his own. The fact that the investigator himself was caught honest – there are doubts, rather the fact is that a number of investigations within the Prosecutor General’s Office hardly add to the prosecutors’ desire to burn on bribes and sit for years in anticipation of a “change of power”.
As a result, the lawyer was detained, and Timur Bokeikhanovich received another case. However, given the fact that Abilkassymov long ago stopped traveling outside Kazakhstan in fear of creditors, defrauded depositors and foreign Themis … The chances that Mr. Abilkasymov will appear before a Ukrainian court, and even more so will warm local penitentiary institutions, is negligible.
It is worth noting that the criminal prosecution of a citizen of Kazakhstan Timur Abilkassymov on the territory of Ukraine was the result of the creation of a financial pyramid by the latter, with the help of which millions of dollars flowed into the pocket of the adviser to the Chairman of the ARRFR (Agency of the Republic of Kazakhstan for the Regulation and Development of the Financial Market). Abilkasymov is not going to return the funds, referring to the pandemic. According to him, he will be able to return the money after the unblocking of offshore accounts in Luxembourg or after the end of quarantine restrictions.
It would not be superfluous to point out that earlier the media reported the following: the adviser to the head of the Agency for Regulation and Development of the Financial Market of the Republic of Kazakhstan Timur Abilkassymov, prior to his appointment to this position, was actively involved in the withdrawal of oligarchs’ funds to offshore companies, which ended in a global failure in Luxembourg. Also Timur Bokeikhanovich was a partner of the consulting company POO “Radius Advisory Lab”, where he advised commercial banks and large holdings of Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan on improving risk management systems, corporate governance and the implementation of IFRS standards.
