PCB Litigation obtains maximum prison sentence against contemnor defendant

Posted on: October 23rd, 2017

On 19 October 2017, and following a string of prior successes for the Bank of Moscow (see http://www.pcblitigation.com/media/cracking-down-on-defendants-further-ground-breaking-orders-obtained-by-pcb-litigation/ and http://www.pcblitigation.com/media/no-place-safe-to-hide-for-russian-debtors/), PCB Litigation has obtained a rare maximum two-year prison sentence against Russian judgment debtor Andrey Chernyakov. The sentence was handed down for several contempts of Court by Mr Chernyakov arising out of breaches of worldwide freezing and related asset disclosure orders against him. Mr Chernyakov’s wife, Anastasia Erokhova, was also sentenced to a significant period of imprisonment for similar breaches.

The decision also confirms that the standard Commercial Court injunction wording covers not only assets beneficially owned by the subject of a freezing order, but also assets directly or indirectly controlled by that person, and therefore that it can extend to the assets of a company of which the respondent is the sole shareholder.
