The law enforcers have detained the former commander of the National Guard of Ukraine Lieutenant General Yuriy Allerov. He is accused of involvement in embezzlement for over 5 million dollars on the construction of housing for the military servicemen. This was reported by the investigator of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) Yevhen Shevchenko on air of ZIK TV channel.
According to him, the case was opened in connection with a fact of alleged large-scale embezzlement during the construction of housing for the military servicemen. The sum exceeds 5 million dollars. “First, it was a construction of flats on the territory of the military unit in Pechersk district of Kyiv. Later, the place for construction was changed to suburbs. The difference between accommodation that the servicemen were supposed to receive and what they received in fact, accounts for over 5 million dollars,” NABU agent said.
Yevhen Shevchenko told that the daughter of Allerov became the owner of one of the flats of the same construction company, which “was involved in the scheme.” At the same time, Shevchenko did not remember the name of this company. However, answering the questions of journalists, he agreed it could be Ukrbud.
“Allerov’s daughter could not explain where she took so much money as she has never had any business and does not have a big income. The investigation on this case was ongoing for a year and a half and the corresponding forensics were conducted. Today, it came to a logical finish and the general was detained about an hour ago,” Shevchenko said.
In addition, he noted that the case hearing, where the restrictive measure will be elected, could take place on May 15. The prosecutors will ask for an arrest. If the bail will be considered, its size will be around 3,8 million dollars.
As it was reported earlier, the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) is conducting searches at the premises of the National Guard of Ukraine and Ukrbud Development company. The searches were held in the frameworks of case on the construction of housing for the National Guard military servicemen. The case provisioned the conduct of 20 searches in total.
The NABU had prepared the note of suspicion for the former National Guard commander Yuriy Allerov. He is suspected of a crime under Article 191 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (misappropriation or seizure of property by abuse of office).
