Shevchenkivsky district court arrested USD 297,730 stored on the British accounts of Roman Nasirov, the former chairman of Ukraine's State Fiscal Service. The court satisfied the respective appeal filed by the prosecutor from the Special Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office.
Nasirov has been holding the sum on his accounts in the UK for three years; however, the money was never listed in his declarations that he filed while serving as the government official - except for the declaration that he filed when running for the presidency this year. Nasirov filed this one immediately after they informed him that USD 300,000 were detected on his British accounts.
Apart from that, the court additionally considered and refused to grant the motion of the defense team about canceling Nasirov's commitments.
The next session of the court is to take place on March 3.
Earlier, Special Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAP) asked 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.
