"Under the procedural guidance of prosecutors of the Prosecutor General's Office, investigators of the State Bureau of Investigation have completed a pre-trial investigation into criminal proceedings against the former chairman of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine for crime against justice (Part 2 of Article 384 and Article 386 of the Criminal Code)," the statement says.

According to the investigation, in October 2018, the suspect "bribed a witness for selfish motives and in the interests of the former head of the Supreme Economic Court of Ukraine, wanted by law enforcement agencies," aiming of refusing to testify or giving intentionally false statements in criminal proceedings related to the illegal seizure of property assets of PJSC Zuyev Energy and Mechanical Plant.
