Prahova Country Court in Romania dismissed the indictment act submitted by Romania’s prosecutor’s office against Petrotel Lukoil and Lukoil Europe Holdings and some of their employees, press service of the Russian oil major said on Wednesday.

On January 19, 2016 the Ploiesti Court of Appeal also rejected an appeal by the prosecutors’ office for changing this decision. Therefore the case will be returned to the prosecutor’s office, Lukoil said. Prahova Country Court took such a decision due to the absence of description of the criminal component in activities of the defendants and due to a number of investigation procedure violations.

Lukoil repeatedly declared operations of its subsidiaries Petrotel Lukoil and Lukoil Europe Holdings and their employees fully complied with the international law and current Romanian legislation. TASS reported earlier the charges of money laundering and tax evasion were brought against the Russian oil major early in July 2015. Lukoil strongly denied all these charges and said it is ready to defend its reputation by all the possible methods within the framework of international and Romanian laws.
