MP from the Servant of the People Olga Vasylevska-Smaglyuk did not take bribe but she received the offers as 112 Ukraine reported citing the polygraphologist as the lawmaker passed the polygraph test.
The expert noted that Smaglyuk is concealing some information.
“She did not take money for the solution of some issues. The only thing is that she conceals information that similar, and it is spotted, offers took place. Possibly, not directly to her because in such case the reaction has more associative nature but our person under the test is aware of presence of similar offers,” the polygraphologist said.
Head of Servant of the People faction David Arakhamia and MP from same faction Oleksandr Dubinskyi have already passed the polygraph test.
