Kaskiv asks for political asylum in Panama

Ex-head of the State Agency for Investment and National Projects Management Vladyslav Kaskiv has asked for political asylum in Panama.

Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yevhen Yenin posted this on Facebook

"Kaskiv's readiness to cooperate with Ukrainian law enforcers turned out to be a fake. There would not be short extradition procedure. Kaskiv has filed a political asylum petition. Chances to have it approved are small, but this takes extra time," Yenin said.

He informed that tonight (Kyiv time) Panama court had ordered a $600,000 bail for Kaskiv and restricted his movement within Panama City. He will be released as soon as he pays the money.
