Former Bankas Snoras AB owners Vladimir Antonov and Raimondas Baranauskas, who are fighting extradition to Lithuania to face fraud charges, aren’t part of a “grand conspiracy” that would deny them a fair trial, a lawyer for the country told a London court.
Former Bankas Snoras AB owner Vladimir Antonov, who is fighting extradition to Lithuania to face fraud charges, lost a U.K. court ruling to lift a freeze of his assets and delay a related civil lawsuit.
Vladimir Antonov , the Russian investor who helped finance Spyker Cars NV’s purchase of Saab Automobile, is in talks with General Motors Co. to become a shareholder in Saab, Svenska Dagbladet reported, citing Antonov.
Latvia is seeking to recover about 150 million lati ($290 million) from Vladimir Antonov, formerly the majority owner of Latvijas Krajbanka AS’s parent bank, which was suspended by regulators because of missing funds.
Latvia froze assets, including a house and 14 luxury cars, that belong to Vladimir Antonov after regulators halted operations at his Latvijas Krajbanka AS last week, TV3’s Neka Personiga reported, citing the police.
