The investigation as of the facts of causing damages in the amount of UAH 9.3 million to the territorial community of Kyiv was completed. On September 16, 2020, the indictment as of Former Main Architect of Kyiv and the Director General of the developer company was sent to court. The abovementioned persons are accused of committing a crime under Part 2 Article 364 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
The investigation revealed that in 2002, the Kyiv City Council has leased the land plots in the city center to the LLC. The company was obliged to build a residential building with a built-in pool for Secondary School No. 130. In 2005, within the framework of this project, Holosiivska District Council of Kyiv, Secondary School No.№ 130 and the LLC signed a cooperation agreement.
According to the agreement, the developer built a building carcass with auxiliary premises of the pool, and in 2008 stopped the construction due to lack of funds. Under these conditions, the LLC signed the investment agreement with another LLC, under which the companies were obliged to complete the construction jointly.
However, in July 2013, the Director of the Department of Urban Planning and Architecture of the Kyiv City Council issued the urban planning conditions and restrictions for area development. Instead of construction of a pool for the school, they provided the construction of a multi-level parking lot. As a result, the LLC built a parking lot instead of pool and received advantage from the sale of parking spaces.
The NABU Detectives started a pre-trial investigation as of these facts in August 2019 and completed in May 2020.
In January 2020, the Former Main Architect of Kyiv and the Director General of the developer company were given notices of suspicion.
On May 15, 2020, the defence was granted with access to the materials of the criminal proceeding for review.
For reference: the Director General of the developer company is suspected of misappropriation of the property of Main Department of the National Guard of Ukraine in the amount of 81.64 million UAH.
According to Article 62 of the Constitution of Ukraine a person is considered not-guilty in commission of crime and cannot be a subject to criminal punishment, until he or she is found guilty by the court.
