13.05.2019 TGS Baltic represents Klaipėdos Nafta in a criminal case

TGS Baltic is representing AB Klaipėdos Nafta in a criminal case regarding large-scale dissipation, fraud, bribery, duty abuse and forgery. 

Accused in this notable case, where a loss of EUR 20.8 million was indicated, are a former CEO and a former COO of AB Klaipėdos Nafta with accomplices. The case is unique for its scale and the persons involved. In late 2017 all those charged were convicted, with the former COO facing real imprisonment for 6 years and accomplices facing 6 and almost 8 years of imprisonment. The only reason the former CEO has avoided real imprisonment is his honorable age. Such strict sanctions for white collar crimes make this case exceptional. It is worth noting that civil claim of AB Klaipėdos Nafta, represented by TGS Baltic, was fully satisfied, and legal expenses were compensated. All those convicted have appealed the sentence.
