In this case, all the collected material may be deemed inappropriate standards.
“Indictment against a person who tried to provide undue benefit, is directed to Pechersky district court of Kyiv in July 2018,” said the Bureau, without specifying, about whom we are talking.
At the end of may 2019 NABOO transferred materials according to corruption schemes at the State Bureau of investigation (GBR), however, the Prosecutor General Lutsenko “for no apparent reason and without studying of materials of criminal production” in August sent the case to the National police. So, explain to NABOO, he did something I tried using bribes to achieve the ultimate beneficiary of corruption schemes at the customs, and put the whole investigation at risk.
The President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky in June demanded from the Verkhovna Rada to dismiss the Prosecutor General of the country. Lutsenko took his post by the decree of the former President of Petro Poroshenko in 2016. He has no legal education and procedural experience. The Parliament refused to satisfy the requirement Zelensky, calling it illegal.
