"NABU has been carrying out a pretrial investigation in different criminal cases since the beginning of April 2016 on facts of possible criminal actions of the detained person," NABU said.

The Ukrayinska Pravda news outlet said that the detainee is Dmytro Sus, who was earlier dismissed for not including information about a house and a car in his e-declaration.

Sus was reported to have "forgotten" to declare an Audi Q7 car worth over UAH 900,000, which, as investigative journalists found out, belonged to his 85-year-old grandmother.
