On 4 March 2017, the Council of the European Union delisted Mr Ivanyushchenko from all European-wide sanctions.
Mr Ivanyushchenko, a prominent Ukrainian businessman and former politician, was designated in 2014 on the grounds of alleged illegal conduct and corruption within the former administration. He was delisted after detailed representations were made by Mr Ivanyushchenko's legal team which demonstrated that the allegations were baseless.
Brian Kennelly QC and Jason Pobjoy act forMr Ivanyushchenko. Brian and Jason have extensive expertise in challenging and advising on EU and international asset-freezing sanctions, and are currently representing more than 30 individuals and entities in over a dozen challenges to asset-freezing regimes before the General Court of the EU and the Court of Justice.
