The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) has opened the criminal case on the illegal enrichment of the Verkhovna Rada people’s deputy Anton Herashchenko. Ukrainian News agency reported this with the reference to NABU.

“A criminal case was registered on September 6 under the article on illegal enrichment. The case was opened according to the court’s decision which obliged the NABU to register it. The pre-trial investigation is underway. The note on suspicion hasn’t been filed yet,” the message says.

Earlier, the journalists found out that Anton Herashchenko was renting an apartment of 200 m2 in Kyiv for the money of his father-in-law Oleksiy Shamburov. A 62-year-old Shamburov did not have any income before 2016, and after that, he received around 9,700 dollars from business activity and could not pay 3,000 dollars each month of the rent.

The lawyers of the Push project turned to NABU with this information, however, the bureau first refused to investigate the case due to the “lack of facts.” Later, the lawyers filed to the court, which obliged the NABU to open the proceedings.

As it was reported earlier, NABU has confirmed that it prepared the note of suspicion in the illicit enrichment to SBU Deputy Head Pavlo Demchyna. The bureau added that it is forced to make public the details of the case as it was done by the official of Ukraine's Security Service.

Also, Ukraine’s Anti-Corruption Bureau informed Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan of suspected illicit enrichment.
