The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine has finished investigating the submission of false information in e-declaration in 2015 and 2016 by Odesa Mayor Hennadiy Trukhanov. This was reported by the NABU press service.

“The detectives of NABU have completed the investigation on entering incorrect information to the e-declaration of 2015 and 2016 by the Odesa Mayor Hennadiy Trukhanov which is punished by criminal law,” the message says.

The official was granted access to the case materials on May 3 before drawing the indictment and directing to the court.

Trukhanov is suspected of breaking law due to the absence in the declaration for 2015-2016 of information about the property of his wife. He is facing a fine of 2,500-3000 of personal exemption or public works from 150 to 200 hours or imprisonment for up to 2 years with depriving of the right to hold certain positions for up to 3 years.
