“I cannot confess to a crime that I did not commit. I am not ashamed to look into the eyes of my loved ones, because no illegal actions and not even a hint of illegal actions were committed on my part. I am not ashamed to look into the eyes of my bank’s employees, because it was the best bank in the country,” Viktar Babaryka said in his final statement in the courtroom.
We note that the prosecutor asked the court to sentence Viktar Babaryka to 15 years in prison and make him pay a fine of 5,000 base units (about 47,000 euros).
The verdict for Viktar Babaryka and other defendants in the Belgazprombank case will be announced on 6 July.
