NABU closed Grymchak’s case about possible misrepresentation
The criminal proceedings concerning the possible entry by the former Deputy Minister of the temporarily occupied territories and the displaced persons of Yuri Grymchak of inaccurate information in electronic statements are closed.
This is stated in a comment posted on the National Anti-Corruption Bureau’s Facebook page.
“The NABU detectives have checked the former assistant minister’s possible abuses: the introduction of false information into the electronic declaration. As part of the investigation, detectives have not established an intention in the person’s actions to knowingly seize false information, so the matter has been closed, “the message said.
It should be noted that these criminal proceedings were opened in November 2019 on the basis of the conclusion of the NACA on the basis of the results of a full verification of the deputy minister’s statement for 2016.
At the same time, the NABU noted that the former deputy minister responsible for BOT issues still has the status of suspected fraud and incitement to provide improper benefits.
