UPDATE: Naftogaz says court seizes 100% in South Stream Transport
(Adds comments in last paragraph)
KIEV/MOSCOW, Oct 25 (PRIME) -- The Amsterdam District Court has seized 100% shares in South Stream Transport B.V., which is building the sea section of the TurkStream pipeline, Naftogaz Ukrainy Executive Director Yury Vitrenko said on his Facebook page on Friday.
УWhy is nobody writing that on October 23, 2019, the Amsterdam District Court seized 100% in South Stream Transport B.V., which is by the way in charge of construction and management of the TurkStream,Ф Vitrenko said.
He said the shares were seized Уin connection with the consideration of the case over (Russian gas giant) GazpromТs fraudulent actions during the transfer of these shares to Transgaz Krasnodar one day before the bailiffs began to freeze GazpromТs assets.Ф
South Stream Transport B.V. confirmed that 100% of its shares were seized by the Dutch court, but said this will not affect construction works and exploitation of the pipeline.
