The UK has started an investigation against suspended head of the State fiscal service of Ukraine Roman Nasirov. This is stated in the message of the British Embassy in Facebook.
“We are deeply concerned about the recent decision of the Solomensky district court of Kiev, where the evidence furnished by great Britain as part of the case against Roman Nasirov was declared inadmissible and rejected. At this stage, the relevant authorities of great Britain will examine all facts to determine whether there was criminal wrongdoing on the part of the citizen of great Britain, which can stand trial in the United Kingdom,” – said in a statement.
As noted, this case emphasizes the urgent need for an independent and transparent judicial system and the need for early establishment of a specialized anti-corruption court, which will include thoroughly tested judges who will properly be able to consider corruption cases against officials.
“The UK supports reform in Ukraine. That is why on 6 July in London will host a conference on reforms in Ukraine. The reform of the Ukrainian judicial system is an important component of the program of the government of Ukraine”, – said in a statement.
Recall, the Solomensky district court of Kyiv rejected the petition of the investigators of the National anticorruption Bureau of Ukraine and prosecutors of Specialized anti-corruption Prosecutor’s office about the recovery of bail-bond suspended the head of the State fiscal service of Ukraine Roman Nasirov in the amount of 100 million UAHto the budget due to the fact that the latter is not handed over a British passport.
