The Supreme Anti-Corruption Court chose the preventive measure for ex-Deputy of the Energy Market Head of the National Commission of the State Regulation on Energy and Public Services. The official was held in custody in absentia. The press office of the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court stated that.
"Thus, the Appeals Chamber of the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court cancelled the decision of the court of the first instance. Previously, due to the decision, the posecutors of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAPO) and detectives of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) were refused in granting the request on the arrest of the appropriate person of the proceeding in absentia," reads the message.
As we reported earlier, the National Anti-Corruption Bureau 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.
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.
