Former Deputy Prosecutor General Vitaliy Kasko is suspected of real estate fraud. We traced back how Kasko turned from a fighter against corruption to an object of investigation.
On May 16, 2014 Vitaliy Kasko was appointed Deputy Prosecutor General on international legal cooperation.
In 2015, Kasko and former Deputy Prosecutor General David Sakvarelidze initiated a criminal rocedure against former prosecutors Volodymyr Shapakin and Oleksandr Kornyyets, accused of bribery. Kasko and Sakvarelidze reported considerable pressure on them regarding this case.
On January 20, Solomenskiy court of Kyiv satisfied the appeal of MP Ihor Lutsenko and ordered National Anti-Corruption Bureau to investigate how Kasko received housing from the office. Kasko allegedly has 3 apartments: one of them – 50 sq. meters and 2 two-level apartments in newly built houses in the center of Kyiv.
On February 15, Kasko resigned, calling prosecution office a “dead body” filled with corruption.
On March 28, court arrested Kasko's 3-room apartment, which was initiated by then-acting Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin. General Prosecutor’s Office explained that the former Deputy Prosecutor General is suspected of real estate fraud.
Tomorrow, Kasko must turn up for interrogation.
