Investigators of the Corruption Crimes Investigation Department of the Main Investigation Directorate of the National Police of Ukraine for operational support of the Strategic Investigation Department of the National Police and the procedural leadership of prosecutors of the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine exposed the fact of taking over the funds of one of the joint-stock companies founded by Ukrzaliznytsia. About this reported in the press service of the National Police of Ukraine.
During the pre-trial investigation, the police found that the officials of the enterprise, acting in prior agreement with the heads of several business entities, purchased components for the repair of locomotive speed meters at inflated prices. In addition, the purchased parts were of poor quality and unusable. According to this scheme, the defendants took possession of more than a million hryvnia.
Yesterday, May 17, in Kiev, Kiev and Dnepropetrovsk regions, law enforcement officers conducted a series of searches in the office premises of the society, supplier enterprises and at the place of residence of the defendants. As a result, documentation on the purchase of components was seized, confirming the illegal activities of the defendants.
The pre-trial investigation is carried out under Part 5 of Art. 191 (misappropriation, embezzlement or seizure of property by abuse of official position) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
Previously it was reported that Ukrzaliznytsia told about the searches at the Kiev Electric Car Repair Plant. "The management of Ukrzaliznytsia creates all the necessary conditions for the work of law enforcement officials and emphasizes its interest in eradicating any illegal phenomena in the work of the company," the press service of the railway company noted.
