Former Estonian finance minister Mart Opmann has been accused of alleged abuse of trust which led to the insolvency of a firm.

In addition to Opmann, Jürgen Vester faces the court, being accused of abuse of trust, causing insolvency of a company and embezzlement and violating booking obligations, the North Estonian district prosecutor office says.

According to the indictment, Vester, a former council member of AS Premium Motors Grupp that is now bankrupt, caused a total of 2.855 million euros of damages for the company during 2007-2010. Mart Opmann, a former company board member has been accused of causing 1.628 million euro damages to the company.
