Prosecutor General Ruslan Ryaboshapka submitted a petition to the Verkhovna Rada on October 17, to approve the criminal prosecution of MP Yaroslav Dubnevych. The press service of the department reported this.
"Pre-trial investigation of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine under the procedural guidance of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office has collected sufficient evidence to report MP about the suspicion of committing criminal offenses under Part 5 of Article 191 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (Misappropriation, embezzlement or conversion of property by malversation). According to investigators, these actions caused losses of nearly 3.8 million dollars", - the message reads.
It is noted that while serving as chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Transport, Dubnevych was aware of Ukrzaliznytsia's financial state, including its needs in public procurement, and had an influence on the founders and officials of the PJSC.
"Evidence shows that this person and his accomplices studied and analyzed the demand and prices in the market for turnouts and made a decision to seize the funds from the Production Support Center, which is an affiliate of PJSC Ukrzaliznytsia," - the Prosecutor General's Office specified.
Investigators believe that the funds were received by legal entities controlled by people's deputy and his accomplices because of a concerted overestimation of the price during the sale of track switching equipment to the affiliate. However, according to the Prosecutor General's Office, the MP repeatedly used his official position in the interests of people related to him.
