The State Investigation Bureau (SIB) has opened the criminal case due to the possible abuses of ex-head of the Constitutional Court Stanislav Shevchuk, as Ukrainian News reported citing SIB representative.

The case is opened due to the abuse of authority or power. The investigation has begun due to the appeal of the Ukrainian Parliament’s MP on the possible illicit appointment of the non-staff advisers by Shevchuk and it led to the unnecessary budget expenses.
