Ukraine’s National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) has opened a criminal case on the possible abuse of office on the part of the chairman of PrivatBank's board of directors Petr Krumphanzl. This was stated by the bureau’s press service in response to the request made by Ukranews.
"NABU complied with the court's decision and entered the information in the Unified Register of Pre-trial Investigations," the statement reads.
On December 17, the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court ordered NABU to open a criminal case under Part 2 of Art. 364 of Ukraine's Criminal Code and launch an investigation.
During the hearing of the case, it was found that, on November 22, the chairman of the primary trade union organization of Privatbank's employees had sent a statement to NABU about the crime being committed by the chairman of the Privatbank's board, but the case had not been opened.
"The bank initiated a new lawsuit in Tel Aviv District Court in Israel against former bank owners and other defendants yesterday. The claim amounts to 600 million dollars," the statement reads.
