The SAPO said on Facebook on October 11 the ex-MP was notified of suspicion under Article 366-1 (declaring false information) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
“It was established that the former MP of Ukraine did not declare the fact that he had financial obligations. Thus, in 2015-2016 the ex-MP did not declare more than Hr 10 million, and in 2017 more than Hr 9 million. The NABU has been implementing the investigation into the facts under the procedural leadership of SAPO prosecutors since 2017,” the report said.
The statement does not mention the name of the ex-MP.
An informed source in law enforcement agencies told Interfax-Ukraine the matter concerns the former owner of Bank Finance and Credit, ex-MP Kostiantyn Zhevaho (he was not a member of any parliamentary faction). Zhevaho had been MP since 1998.
