The prosecutor’s office doesn’t see grounds for choosing preventive measures against the scammers in the scandal in the Ukroboronprom Andrii Rohoza and Vitalii Zhukov, who are suspected of tax evasion. Ukrainian News reports this, referring to the response of the Prosecutor General’s Office.
Law enforcers say that men “fully” repay “losses inflicted on the state budget” before the completion of the pre-trial investigation. “Preventive measures in their respect were not selected due to the absence of risks stipulated by the criminal procedural law,” the GPU said. Thus, the prosecutor’s office believes that there is no risk of escape, pressure on witnesses, destruction of evidence.
Recall, the Bihus.info published an investigation into how people from the surrounding of Petro Poroshenko manage defense sector embezzlement. According to journalists, Ihor Hladkovskyi, the 22-year-old son of the Deputy Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, organized the supply of smuggled Russian parts at inflated prices. His father allegedly at least once received a “payoff” of 30 thousand dollars from this scheme, and all the investigating authorities, including NABU, deliberately ignored the case for Hladkovskyi for bribes.
