The National Anti-Corruption Bureau and the National Police of Ukraine deny their involvement in the kidnapping of Ukrainian ex-judge Mykola Chaus in Moldova and his deportation to Ukraine, Ukrainian News reports.
"The operation is not ours, but we are interested in it," a representative of the anti-corruption bureau said.
The National Police also said they had nothing to do with Chaus's abduction. In particular, the head of the Ukrainian Interpol Vasyl Nevolya says that he learned about this information from the media, and denies involvement in this operation. The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine also expressed doubts that Chaus's kidnapping was their work.
The SBU (Security Service of Ukraine) has not yet commented on this information.
Chaus was kidnapped in Moldova on April 3.
Meanwhile, Moldovan leader Maia Sandu demands that the Interior Ministry and Information and Security Service take urgent action to find the kidnapped Ukrainian judge Mykola Chaus.
"It is unacceptable that people get kidnapped in Moldova - no matter if they are citizens of the country or not, no matter whether their guilt in a crime is proven," Sandu wrote.
