Kyiv's Shevchenkivsky district court has extended pretrial measures imposed on former head of Ukraine's State Fiscal Service (SFS) Roman Nasirov for another two months, until October 11, 2018.
Thus, the court granted the motion submitted by the prosecutors of the Specialized Anti-corruption Prosecutor's Office, an UNIAN correspondent reports.
In particular, Nasirov is obliged to wear an ankle monitor. He is also banned to leave Kyiv region without court permission. In addition, Nasirov is forbidden to communicate with witnesses.
His foreign passports must be kept in the State Migration Service.
The court made the same decision on his subordinate, the head of the SFS debt repayment department, Volodymyr Novikov.
The next court session is scheduled for August 15, at 13:00 Kyiv time.
As UNIAN reported, prosecutors from the Special Anti-corruption Prosecutor's Office on November 10, 2017, filed an indictment against Nasirov and his subordinate, the head of the SFS debt repayment department, Volodymyr Novikov.
Nasirov is accused of abuse of power or official position and official forgery under Articles 364 and 366 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. His subordinate is charged with committing crimes under Part 5 of Article 27 (complicity) and Part 2 of Article 364 (abuse of power or official position).
Investigators insist Nasirov, acting in the interests of Member of Parliament Oleksandr Onyshchenko, initiated unsubstantiated installment of the tax debt to three companies in 2015-2016, which caused almost UAH 2 billion in budget losses. The Cabinet of Ministers on March 3, 2017, suspended Nasirov during the investigation, and on January 31, 2018, he was dismissed from his post.
