The National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) finished the pretrial investigation and opened the materials of the case on the possible declaration of the false information by Energy Minister Ihor Nasalyk, as the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office (SAP) reported on Facebook.
“On behalf of the SAP prosecutors, NABU detectives made a decision on the end of the pretrial investigation and open criminal proceeding in suspicion of the Ministry of Energy and Coal Industry of Ukraine in the commitment of a crime due to provision of the false information in the declaration of a person authorized for fulfillment of the functions of the state or local self-government in 2015-2018,” the message said.
After familiarization of the defense with the materials of the pretrial investigation, the decision of the passing of the proceeding to the court will be decided after it.
According to the investigation, in 2014, Ihor Nasalyk borrowed $1.249 million; however, he did not put information on the annual declaration.
The NABU detectives prepared a report on suspicion of Igor Nasalyk, the Minister of Energy and Coal Mining, over declaring false information.
Nasalyk states that the suspicion is politically motivated.
