“The creation of the Bureau of Economic Security is a new page in the relations between the state and business. This step is one of the final ones on the way to liquidate the tax police. The bureau will put an end to the pressure on business and become a new analytical approach to investigations in the field of financial and economic crimes,” Prime Minister of Ukraine Denis Shmygal wrote this in his Telegram.
As it was reported earlier, Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has supported a draft law № 3087-d on the establishing of the Bureau of Economic Security of Ukraine. 245 MPs voted in its favor.
The draft law envisages the establishment of the Bureau of Economic Security of Ukraine as a state law enforcement body, which is tasked with preventing, detecting, terminating, investigating, and containing criminal offenses under its jurisdiction. The Bureau of Economic Security of Ukraine is formed by the President of Ukraine.
