Director of Ukraine's State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) Roman Truba says an employee of the National Agency for Prevention of Corruption (NAPC) illegally copied confidential information from electronic asset declarations of top officials with the SBI Kyiv office, the Prosecutor General's Office (PGO) of Ukraine, as well as judges and deputies, with an alleged aim to hand over the data to third parties.

"Using the official access key to the Unified State Register of Declarations, he [the perpetrator] uploaded on a separate drive information protected by law, namely ID codes, passport numbers, places of residence, birthdates, and locations of certain facilities specified in declarations. He had been doing this without due grounds and, most importantly, illegally," Truba said Sept 10.
