Oleksandr Klymenko, Ukrainian ex-minister for taxes and incomes, is now a suspect in the case of state treason. SBU, the state security service, reported this on Wednesday.

Klymenko faces charges, which are foreseen by Article 111 of Ukraine’s Criminal Code. The SBU found out that the ex-minister ‘deliberately damaged Ukraine’s economic and information safety, its sovereignty and territorial integrity’. Article 111 foresees that the punishment for such criminal activity is 12 to 15 years in prison with confiscation of property.

The former minister who served during the rule of Viktor Yanukovych is already suspected of withdrawing 12 billion U.S. dollars from Ukraine’s state treasury.
