Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAPO) informed the businessman Vadym Alperin, the organizer of the corruption scheme at customs border, which caused damages in the amount of more than 321,042 dollars, on suspicion. The press service of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office reported that.
The prosecutor's office claims that the man was involved in organizing a scheme related to customs clearance of imported goods to Ukraine at low prices. He is suspected of abuse of authority and office.
Law enforcement officers are expected to set the pre-trial restriction for him.
"Pre-trial actions of detainees, including seven customs officers, are qualified under Part 2 of Article 364, Part 3 of Article 212, Part 1 of Article 255 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. The issue of notification on suspicion is solved. Detectives and prosecutors carry out other investigative actions related to the establishment of circumstances of commission of crime," the NABU's statement said.
