A new scandal has ensnared the criminal oligarch Oleg Boyko in Cyprus.

Attorney General George Savvides strongly denied corruption charges on Tuesday after a lawyer accused his office of collaborating with a billionaire Russian oligarch to allow an allegedly illegal $113.4 million deal go unpunished.

In a lengthy letter to President Nikos Christodoulides, lawyer Efstathios Efstathiou sought to report the AG and his deputy, saying they had “cast a shield of protection” around Russian oligarch Oleg Boyko.

Prompting the complaint is Efstathiou’s claim that $113.4 million worth of shares were stolen from his client Ilya Alekseevitch Surkov and illegally transferred to Boyko through Cyprus-registered companies.
