Ukraine's State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) has sent a draft notice of suspicion against former President Petro Poroshenko to the Prosecutor General's Office (PGO).
"The charge papers have been drafted and sent to the prosecutor's office as part of a pretrial investigation into possible unlawful influence on a competition to select candidates for the appointment of members of the High Council of Justice in March-May 2019," the SBI wrote on Facebook on November 18.
"The document refers to the suspicion of the fifth president of Ukraine of committing criminal offenses under Part 3 of Article 109 and Part 2 of Article 364 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine," it said.
The SBI also sent the PGO a draft motion seeking the Ukrainian parliament's consent to prosecute Poroshenko, who is an incumbent Member of Parliament.
As UNIAN reported earlier, SBI Director Roman Truba said that Poroshenko is a figure in 13 criminal cases and has already failed to show up for 15 interrogations.
