Monaco (ots/PRNewswire) - Monaco's Court of Appeal has dismissed the
criminal proceedings against Yves Bouvier initiated by the Russian
oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev, owner of the AS Monaco football club. It
was concluded that the investigation against Bouvier was carried out
with a systematic partiality and bias which tainted the whole
The criminal proceeding launched in January 2015 by the Russian
oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev, against Yves Bouvier has been dismissed
by the Monaco Court of Appeal on 12 December, 2019. The Court found
that "all investigations were conducted in a biased and unfair way
without the defendant being in a position to retrospectively redress
these serious anomalies that permanently compromised the balance of
rights of the parties."
The Court also said that "the evidence of the proceedings were all
collected under conditions which significantly undermined the rights
of the defendant."
Similarly, it concluded that "all the acts of the investigation as
well as the introductory submission of February 24, 2015 is tainted
by this grievance (infringement of the rights of the defence) as well
as the subsequent charges against Yves Bouvier or Tania Boltadjieva
(Rappo) on February 28, 2015 and all subsequent acts of investigation
which are the direct consequence thereof, since these irregularities
which seriously tainted the search and the establishment of the truth
impacting in a continuous and systematic way the entire proceeding."
This decision is a major turning point in the Rybolovlev affair and
marks the end of legal proceedings in Monaco against Yves Bouvier.
Yves Bouvier said: "Dmitry Rybolovlev's arguments never hold up to
legal scrutiny and this is the reason why he has not won a single
case against me in any jurisdiction. Rybolovlev's attacks against me
had nothing to do with the sale of art. He was trying to artificially
depreciate the value of his collection in the midst of his divorce
proceeding, to punish me for having refused to corrupt the Swiss
judges in his divorce, and to steal my freeport in Singapore and its
technology to build a new one in Vladivostok".
Mr. Bouvier was advised by a team of lawyers in Monaco, France and
Switzerland composed of Luc Brossollet, Charles Lecuyer, David
Bitton, Frank Michel and Alexandre Camoletti.
Mr. Rybolovlev, who had initiated a string of commercial and criminal
cases against Mr. Bouvier in multiple jurisdictions, is now under
criminal investigations notably for corruption and influence
trafficking in Monaco, France and Switzerland in relation to his
attacks against Mr. Bouvier.
