US Senator John McCain released the statement today on the arrest of Roman Nasirov, the suspended head of State Fiscal Service of Ukraine.
This was reported on the Senator’s website, published on Friday, March 10.
“The arrest of Roman Nasirov, Ukraine’s top tax official and director of the State Fiscal Service, pending embezzlement charges is a positive step forward for the Government of Ukraine in its fight against the corruption. The National Anticorruption Bureau (NABU) has done commendable work on this investigation and in its tireless efforts to tackle official corruption. This success highlights the importance of NABU’s independent investigative work as well as the value of establishing a specialized anti-corruption court to ensure the integrity of verdicts," McCain stressed,
