Czech police detain Ukraine’s ex-minister of economy

Czech police detain Ukraine’s ex-minister of economy
Ukraine’s former Minister of Economy, Bogdan Danilishin, who is facing allegations of abuse of power, was apprehended in the Czech Republic, Ukraine’s Ministry of Internal Affairs reported.

Today, we received a message from Interpol’s central national bureau in the Czech Republic, which stated that Mr. Danilishin, who has been on the international wanted list, has been detained on the territory of that country,” the ministry’s statement read.

Danilishin was put on the international wanted list in August after failing to appear for police questioning. He has been accused of abuse of office, which he held in 2007-2010, and causing his government more than $2 million in losses.
