Dmitri Rybolovlev’s lawyer taking case to the European Court of Justice

Lawyers Herve Temime and Thomas Giaccardi issued this statement: “The decision of the Monaco court does not comply with the fundamental principles governing any criminal procedure. The study of maitre Bersheda’s mobile phone and the use of confidential information contained during a trial constitutes a gross violation of professional secrecy and the right to privacy.

“In this regard, we plan to transfer the case to the European Court of Human Rights for consideration, to ascertain the violation of the basic rights of the accused by the authorities of the municipality.”

The dispute relates to the use of SMS evidence on the phone of attorney Tatiana Bersheda, which was seized by police in one case, causing data to be subsequently deleted, allegedly jeopardising Rybolovlev’s case.
