However, several days after he was given the gifts – June 6 (Lursoft data) – Valery Zakharin invested them in the capital of his company – SIA Eurneo.

According to Zakharin’s press-representative, these reason for him to give away such generous gifts is the businessman’s health problems. His failing health made him reconsider several matters.

In total, in the beginning of 2013, Zakharin owned nearly two dozens of real estate. This includes a house with additional 3 335 m2 of land in Jurmala. It was bought for LVL 133 thousand in 1998 (current value is estimated at LVL 2 million). He also owns a 65 m2 large apartment in Liepaja. It was officially bought for LVL 2 000.

As BNN had previously reported, Liepājas metalurgs (LM) shareholder Kirov Lipman has decided to begin negotiations with creditors without mediation from Prudentia Advisers.

On Wednesday, June 5, the government’s specially formed working group plans to go through Prudentia Advisers’ report on the proposals submitted by LM shareholders. Meanwhile, Lipman has begun meeting with representatives of Citadele bank in order to take the opinion of creditors and act without mediators. Security has been tightened at the plant, Dienas Bizness reports.

“He have not seen the documents signed by Zakharin and Segal. We ask Prudentia to present them, but they refused. Perhaps, we would sign these documents if we were to see them. Judging from the information that was released publicly, the options provided by Prudentia are being amended at the moment. It is no longer an initial offer, but we do not know what the new one is”, – Lipman’s representative, sworn lawyer Pavel Rebenok, notes.

Seeing as how Prudentia keeps silent and chooses not to reveal any information, the decision has been made to communicate directly with the creditors and learn their opinion about the situation. Citadele bank is the first creditor with whom negotiations were initiated on June 4.
