On June 15, 2021, the NABU Detectives and SAPO Prosecutors served notices of suspicion to a former head of Ukragroleasing SE NJSC and his accomplice, the head of a private company. Their illegal actions inflicted losses worth UAH 4.9 million to the State. The actions of the suspects fall under Part 2 Article 364 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
As established, in February 2013, the ex-official and an entrepreneur concluded an agreement under which Ukragroleasing illegally provided UAH 5.7 million of interest-free repayable loan to a private company.
UAH 4.9 million of this amount was not returned to the SE. These funds were spent in favor of companies controlled by the relatives of the ex-Ukragroleasing head.
NABU has been investigating the abovementioned facts since August 2019.
According to Article 62 of the Constitution of Ukraine, a person is considered not-guilty in the commission of a crime and cannot be subject to criminal punishment until he or she is found guilty by court.
