Kyiv-based investigation departments of the State Bureau of Investigations of Ukraine have been looking into a case of possible embezzlement by Ukrspetsexport company's officials.
The press office of the Bureau reported that the pre-trial investigation found out that a group of officials got a hand on the funds of the company, transferring them to accounts of stranger companies.
Ukrspetsexport's workers transferred the money to the bank accounts of Fisher Club and Fisher Club 2017. These companies paid Ukrspetsexport for fictitiously conducted food services for foreign delegations.
The sum of transferred money makes 10 million Ukrainian hryvnas (USD 384,000).
If the suspects' guilt is proven, they can face the prison term from seven to 12 years behind the bars, with the deprivation of the property and the right to serve in the government for three consecutive years.
