Former Ukrainian Member of Parliament Oleksandr Onyshchenko, who is wanted in Ukraine for alleged fraud and money laundering, has been refused political asylum in Germany.
In early May, the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees refused the former lawmaker from Ukraine political asylum in Germany and urged him to leave the country immediately, Deutsche Welle's Ukrainian Service reported with reference to the press service of the court of the city of Oldenburg, Germany.
This is not the first time when Onyshchenko was denied asylum in Germany. Two years ago, the German Embassy in Madrid refused to issue him a national visa, with which he could apply for a residence permit in Germany. To obtain such a visa, the former lawmaker became director of a German company founded by himself. The company was used to register the acquisition of elite horses for his own manor.
