Searches are taking place at ARMA, the National agency for detection, search and management of corrupt assets. Law enforcers from the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) and State Investigations Bureau (SBI) also search apartments of top managers of this agency. ARMA's press office reported that on Thursday.
"(...) law enforcers conduct investigation actions within a criminal proceeding", reads the message.
Halyna Yanchenko, the MP from Servant of the People added that the searches occur at the central office, as well as apartments of acting manager and two of his deputies.

In April 2019, the detectives of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine held searchers of the National Agency of Ukraine for finding, tracing, and management of assets divided from corruption and other crimes (ARMA). The press service of Ukraine’s National Anti-Corruption Bureau reported this on Facebook.
The searchers are held in the framework of investigation of possible abuse of powers by the state officials as well as inflicting damages almost in $350,000 to the legal bodies.
