The National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) did not send a petition on lifting the immunity of the Head of the Radical Party, people’s deputy Oleg Lyashko, to other bodies, as Artem Sytnyk, NABU Head, said in the lobbies of the Verkhovna Rada after the session of Parliament’s Anti-Corruption Committee, broadcasted by 112 Ukraine.

Answering the question about the petitions on people’s deputies Anton Herashchenko, Oleg Lyashko and the investigation of the e-declaration of Pavlo Petrenko, Justice Minister, he said: “It’s another scheme used to unite certain elite against us.”

“If we are talking about these individuals, NABU did not file any official petitions on Lyashko. Speaking about Petrenko, as I far as I know, there is a court’s decision. For now, when it was reported that we have allegedly revealed someone, we did not have this decision, no proceeding at all. The same goes with Herashchenko,” Sytnyk said.

He noted that someone was trying to stop NABU operation without audit with these messages.

At the same time, the Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko stated that the petition on Lyashko was found incomplete and insufficiently substantiated.

“For now, the list of the petitions is depleted. Besides, I can confirm again that I have a petition on Lyashko initiated by NABU and SAP and on people’s deputy Mosiychuk, initiated by NABU and SAP. The legal analysis of the Prosecutor General Office defined that the petition was incomplete, unprovable, so I cannot file the relevant documents for the consideration at the session,” Lutsenko said.
