RASK represents client in court proceedings against business prohibition.

Case

RASK successfully represented Rein Kilk in court proceedings regarding an application to subject him to a business prohibition. The application was dismissed and Rein Kilk was not subjected to a business prohibition.

The trustee of Werol Tehased (in bankruptcy) and the chair of the bankruptcy committee submitted an application to court to subject former member of the board of Werol Tehased (in bankruptcy) Rein Kilk and current member of the board Meelis Virro to a business prohibition.

On 22 October 2013, the court of first instance ruled that the application to impose a business prohibition on Rein Kilk was unfounded, and the application was dismissed. However, as for Meelis Virro, the court decided to subject him to a business prohibition.

RASK also submitted an application to court to start constitutional review proceedings to verify the constitutionality of the provisions of law governing the business prohibition.

Before going bankrupt, Werol Tehased AS owned the largest rapeseed oil production plant in the Baltics, located in Jõgeva county. In 2007, Rein Kilk acquired the plant from the state.
