The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) is investigating the alleged illicit enrichment of the Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration Oleksiy Filatov. This was reported by Ukrainian News agency with the reference to NABU press service.

“Starting from February 15, 2018, the investigators of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau are conducting pre-trial investigation concerning possible illicit enrichment of the Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration,” the press service reported.

All the documents and appeals regarding this received after February 15 are added to the materials of the criminal case for further probe.

Earlier, the lawyer Parinova said the Bureau refused to look into possible violations of Oleksiy Filatov when filling in the e-declaration.  

Also, an investigation of Ukrainian media revealed that Filatov did not declare a civilian wife – a lawyer, who allegedly received a number of profitable contracts after her husband's appointment to the Administration.

In his turn, Filatov believes the case on his alleged illegal enrichment has no chance to succeed.
