El 24 d'octubre de 2022, el Tribunal de Districte dels Estats Units per al Districte Sud de Nova York es va pronunciar a favor BTA Bank JSC i la ciutat d'Almati i contra Mukhtar Ablyazov per violar les ordres judicials.

La sentència va considerar que Ablyazov menyspreava una ordre judicial de l'any anterior i va recompensar Almaty i BTA Bank 140,115.60 dòlars per les despeses rellevants. La sentència multa a Ablyazov amb 1,000 dòlars diaris fins que pagui.

The contempt decision follows a 19 August 2022 order from U.S. Magistrate Judge Katharine H. Parker recommending Ablyazov be held in contempt and punished, and a 21 October 2022 order from U.S. District Judge John G. Koeltl overruling Ablyazov’s objections to Judge Parker’s order.

Ablyazov was aware of the “clear and unambiguous order” because he participated in the proceedings and opposed to the sanctions. Judge Alison Nathan overruled the objection.

Ablyazov confessed his failure to follow the court’s ruling was “obvious and persuasive.” And “made no effort” to follow the court’s order, the court said.

Finally, the Court rejected Ablyazov’s attempts to blame claimants for pursuing their claims against him, stating that rationale “could not explain the apparent violation of his discovery responsibilities in this action”

Six years ago, the City of Almaty and BTA Bank sued Mukhtar Ablyazov and his criminal partners in New York for money laundering. Ablyazov stole billions of dollars from BTA Bank by issuing bogus loans, a crime for which he has been convicted and imprisoned in Kazakhstan and held civilly liable in the UK. In U.S. proceedings, the plaintiffs have amassed more evidence of Ablyazov’s crimes and secured witness testimony. The trial is set to commence on 28 November 2022 in New York City.
