Solomensky District Court of Kyiv arrested the property of ex-Chief of the Main Directorate of the National Police in Odesa region Dmytro Holovin. He is suspected in the misappropriation of a consignment of cigarettes in the sum of $1.94 million as it was the material evidence in the criminal proceeding as Ukrainian News reported citing the source at law enforcement bodies.
“The property is arrested,” the source said.
The issue is about the arrest of the flats, cars and bases of rest, which belong to Holovin and his relatives.
Earlier Holovin was released to the house arrest. However, the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office (SAPO) is not satisfied with this restrictive measure and intends to appeal the decision of the court. Earlier the prosecutors demanded to arrest Holovin and provide the possibility of the bail in the sum of $856,000.
Ex-Chief of the Main Directorate of the National Police in Odesa region refused to testify and cooperate with the investigation.
The investigators of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) arrested former head of police department Dmytro Holovin and his ex-deputy Konstyantyn Heyk in Odesa on July 25.
Dmytro Holovin was a Chief of the Main Directorate of the National Police in Odesa region since November 2016. In April 2019, he quit the office.
As it was reported earlier, NABU finished investigations on the embezzlement at PJSC Ukrzaliznytsya in the amount of 3.7 million dollars. The materials of the investigation were shown to eight suspects in order to study them before drawing up the indictment and passing it to the court.
According to the report, suspects during December 2015 - March 2017 arranged the purchase of PJSC Ukrzaliznytsya of articulated products overpriced with the involvement of controlled intermediary companies and thus seized the funds of the branch Center for production of PJSC Ukrzaliznytsia in the amount about of 3.7 million dollars.
