On October 5, the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office passed to the court an indictment against Ukrainian people’s deputies Boryslav Rosenblat and Maksym Polyakov, as SAP press office reports.
The people’s deputies and four more suspects are accused of obtaining improper advantage for the realization of the right of the legislative initiative and improper influence.
In their turn, the people’s deputies refused from receiving the indictment.
The statement says that the procedural law obliges the prosecutor to hand in the indictment to the suspects before its sending to the court, but the suspects have no right not to get it.
“The prosecutor and the detectives went to the place of work and residence of the suspects to hand in the indictment, but only one of them has received it – the rest refused, which was mentioned in the relevant notes at the presence of the witnesses. Besides, the mentioned facts are video recorded,” SAP informed.
Earlier, the court ruled to take off the electronic bracelet from Rosenblat on February 9, and from Polyakov – on February 8.
Boryslav Rosenblat and Maksym Polyakov are involved in the “amber case”. The Prosecutor General Office suspects Rosenblat in undue influence and bribery totaling $280,000 and Polyakov – in undue influence and bribery totaling $7,500. These people’s deputies are suspected of obtaining an improper advantage for presenting the bills and performing the acts connected with the procurement of amber in the interest of the non-resident company. The people’s deputies deny all the accusations.
