The staff of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) ran over a law enforcement officer and caused a car accident after installation of wiretapping in the building of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAPO). Head of SAPO Nazar Kholodnytsky claimed this at the briefing.
It is noted that illegally installed wiretapping by the staff of NABU was discovered in the courtyard of SAPO, today, on September 19. Also, a car with the personnel of NABU was detected near the administrative building.
‘Suddenly, the special forces of the Anti-Corruption Bureau appeared when the police arrived. The SAPO driver was forcibly taken out from the office car. My understanding is that the NABU employee took his seat, willfully ran the VAN over the personnel of the State Security Administration and the rest of the people. “Pajero” and two other cars were involved in the car accident. The accident is being registered,’ Kholodnytsky noted.
He added that the injured driver of SAPO is in a hospital right now with an initial diagnosis of a broken arm.
‘I will insist and ask the leadership of SBU, Police to hold a thorough investigation of each of these proceedings after the fact of bugging, willful car accident, theft of auto, recorded on the video, after the fact of the unlawful acts of each of the members of the special forces of NABU who were involved in this operation,’ Kholodnytsky summarized.
The press office of SAPO published this video from the site of the incident.
The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) denied the information on the installation of the wiretapping in the building of SAPO.
‘NABU didn’t attempt to install an equipment for bugging the cabinet of the Head of SAPO,’ reads the message of NABU on Twitter.
Earlier today, Head of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau Artem Sytnyk didn’t attend the session of the Anti-Corruption Committee of Parliament where he was invited. Mass media reported that the reason for Sytnyk’s non-appearance was the disclosure of the information on repeated try to bug Kholodnytsky.
As it was mentioned, the State Security Administration discovered a wiretapping cable laying from the building of Okhmatdyt to the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office.
