Episode 10 | Asymmetric loyalties
On Wednesday 4 March 2020, Geneva’s head prosecutor, Yves Bertossa, held a new hearing in the Rybolovlev v. Bouvier case. Our story is now coming to its conclusion. This latest and last episode is about all the money that is missing or flowing like water, the money that dictates the shifting alliances. We discover that Alp Services, the detective agency, has been in financial difficulty due to Yves Bouvier’s unpaid bills; and that after having faced Marc Bonnant in court during the lawyer’s defence of his ex-wife, Dmitry Rybolovlev invited him to join his legal team and fight Yves Bouvier. The “Mozart of the Bar” agreed but then had to recuse himself because of a conflict of interest. The lawyer may still be able to play a decisive role in the affair, however, by orchestrating an out-of-court settlement.
