Manafort is considering cooperating with the investigation to avoid another court

on Sun Sep 09, 2018 1:57 pm
Manafort is considering cooperating with the investigation to avoid another court

Paul Manafort's lawyers discussed with US prosecutors the terms of an investigation agreement to avoid the second stage of the trial that should take place in Washington in September. Bloomberg writes

about it with reference to its own sources.

The discussion of a possible agreement concerned the points of accusation in which Manafort admitted his guilt and what term of imprisonment would agree with the US prosecutor's office.

In the evening of August 21, a jury trial in the US city of Alexandria, Virginia, found Paul Manafort guilty of 8 charge points from 18.

During the hearing, Manafort's defense refused to call witnesses because he was afraid that the prosecutor's office would receive compromising information during a cross-examination.

Manafort himself did not take the opportunity to speak, because he was also afraid of questions from the prosecution side.

Paul Manafort was charged with 18 points. Most of them involve financial fraud, including corruption, money laundering through foreign accounts, tax evasion, unregistered work for foreign governments, and so on.

The focus of the case, on which he first began to judge, is Manafort's work for Ukrainian politicians from 2005 to 2014. Then he consulted the "Party of Regions" and Viktor Yanukovych, and also collaborated with Ukrainian oligarchs - Rinat Akhmetov, Sergei Lyovochkin and others.

At the next trial of Manafort, he will present 1,500 evidence in a case about his lobbying activities, in particular, in Ukraine.

As Tetyana Vorozhko, a journalist from the Ukrainian Voice of America community service, reported that 7 charges will be filed at the next stage of the trial in Manafort . They will refer to the fact that he did not register as a lobbyist who works for foreign interests, provided false testimony, pressured witnesses, and also laundered money.

Vorozhko also noted that, according to American justice, the first trial of Manafort ended quickly enough: it lasted three weeks.
