Special Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAP) asks Shevchenkivsky district court in Kyiv to arrest 300,000 U.S. dollars that belong to Roman Nasirov, notorious ex-head of the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine. SAP posted that on Facebook on Thursday.
On February 7, the court held another session in Nasirov's case. During the hearing, the SAP prosecutor filed the appeal to arrest his property.
'Over at least three years, the ex-leader of the State Fiscal Service has been enjoying the assets in the amount of 297,730 U.S. dollars on the accounts in the financial establishment on the premises of the United Kingdon of Great Britain and Northern Ireland', reads the message.
At that, the SAP noted that this money was never mentioned in one of Nasirov's declarations while he was a civil servant. However, the funds were declared in another declaration, with which Nasirov ran for the presidency; this particular document was filed immediately after Nasirov was informed that the law enforcers detected the mentioned funds.
Nasirov was temporarily relieved of his duties on 3 March 2017, and although he was reinstated in his function by a court decision late 2018 he did not return as head of the State Fiscal Service.
