Kyiv's Pechersky district court has reinstated a criminal case involving the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine in the U.S. presidential election. It was reported by People's Deputy Andrii Derkach on the air.
"Such a decision means that the new leadership of the Prosecutor General's Office may withdraw the country from the international scandal that it got into because of the actions of National Anti-Corruption Bureau’s leadership and former president Petro Poroshenko by the way of conducting investigative actions. In our opinion, the case was illegally closed last January,” the people's deputy noted.
Also, according to Derkach, for a year and a half, only three investigative actions were conducted in the proceedings: interrogation of the people's deputy as a witness, interrogation of a National Anti-Corruption Bureau’s detective and review of the Internet web-page.
"It is a very important moment to restore the trust between Ukraine and the US as a strategic partner. Only a proper public legal investigation, which will satisfy all parties, will allow saying that Ukraine is on the path of becoming the rule-of-law state. It is a very important moment for the Prosecutor General's Office to gather materials from 11 criminal cases, which we provided at a press conference on October 9, this year, and submitted to the US Department of Justice without any requests," Derkach added.
As we reported earlier, the People's Deputy of Ukraine Andrii Derkach, the initiator of the criminal case on interference in the U.S. elections, released documents, according to which First Deputy Director of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) Gizo Uhlava has been providing information to the US Embassy in Kyiv for several years, which negatively influenced the course of events in Ukraine and USA.
