The investigations of the proceedings on 50 million UAH embezzlement of funds of PJSC "State Food and Grain Corporation of Ukraine”, conducted by the NABU detectives, resulted into 34 million UAH returned to the accounts of the Corporation.
"The NABU’s task is not only to expose the crime but also to bring the guilty ones to justice, eliminate the corruption schemes and return the stolen funds to the state. Over the past few months of the NABU’s work, 69 million UAH have already been returned to the state budget," the NABU Director Artem Sytnyk said.
It should be reminded that on July 26, 2016 the detectives of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine took into custody the former acting chairman of the board of PJSC "State Food and Grain Corporation of Ukraine" along with the chairman of the board of PJSC "Rokytne grain enterprise".
According to the investigation, the detainees have signed a contract on the supply of 16,600 tons of third-grade maize to the Corporation on the terms of full prepayment. Consequently, PJSC "State Food and Grain Corporation of Ukraine" transferred about 50 million UAH of the budget funds to the enterprise's account for the commodity, which had never been supplied.
