The National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) requested of Interpol to put on the international wanted list and detain the former chairman of Ukraine's Energy and Utilities the National Regulatory Commission Dmytro Vovk. A source in law enforcement bodies said this to Ukrainian News agency.

“Documents for search and detention were sent to Interpol,” he said. According to him, Interpol has not yet made a decision.

It is known that Vovk went with his family to Belgium.

Vovk is suspected of embezzlement in the Rotterdam+ case. On August 8, 2019, NABU reported that they did not find documentary evidence that coal was transported into Ukraine from Rotterdam by the sea in the volumes announced by Energy and Utilities the National Regulatory Commission. As a result of this, electricity prices were high, which raised the prices for products, services and so on. NABU detectives reported the suspicion to 6 individuals, in particular to Vovk.

Vovk himself believes that he and his staff are faced with political persecution. He also said that he was not ready to return to Ukraine, because he did not believe in the independence of the judicial system.

As it was reported earlier, NABU failed to establish the location of former first deputy secretary of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) Oleg Gladkovsky. Former first deputy secretary of the NSDC is resting in Spain.
