The State Bureau of Investigation (DBR) informed the Chairman of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine Oleksandr Tupytsky of suspicion. This was reported by the DBR’s press service.

The DBR stated that Tupytsky was charged with committing criminal offenses against justice under Part 2 of Art. 384, art. 386 ("Knowingly false testimony accompanied with the fabrication of prosecution or defense evidence") of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

According to the DBR, despite gaining the status of a suspect in a criminal case and his suspension, Tupytsky continues to go to work and obstructs the pre-trial investigation.

As we reported earlier, Tupytsky was suspended from the office by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's decree of December 29.

The relevant request was made by the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine.

"He claimed he could not show up because of family matters, but he never provided any documents on the importance of reasons for failed attendance. The charge paper is being handed over on the day of composition; if it cannot be handed in person, it is sent via mail on the same day," the Office's press department reported.
