The court of appeal did not see any grounds for changing the measure of restraint for the former chairman of the parliamentary commission, writes SID.
The Appellate Chamber of the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court has left in custody the former people’s deputy, ex-head of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Construction, Urban Planning and Housing and Communal Services Sergei Skuratovsky.
This was reported by the press service of the AP VAKS.
“On January 17, 2023, the VAKS Appeals Chamber considered the appeals of the defense and the prosecution against the decision of the investigating judge of the VAKS dated January 4, 2023 on the detention of the People’s Deputy of Ukraine of the VIII convocation with the alternative of paying UAH 40.26 million bail. Based on the results of the consideration, the panel of judges left the appeals of the defense and the prosecution without satisfaction, and the ruling of the investigator of the VAKS judge remained unchanged“, the decision says.
Earlier, VAKS arrested the ex-people’s deputy Skuratovsky.
Recall, NABU and SAP reported suspicions to ex-People’s Deputy Skuratovsky and other persons in the assignment of more than UAH 112 million to a financial institution. According to the “Word and Deed”, we are talking about the former deputy Sergei Skuratovsky.
According to investigators, in 2019 Skuratovsky, being the actual owner of a number of legal entities, was building a land plot on the outskirts of Kyiv. The construction was carried out for credit funds secured by a multi-apartment housing complex built in the future, land plots and a number of personal assignments (including the people’s choice).
In order to avoid mortgage obligations and to be able to sell the constructed residential real estate, the people’s deputy, with the involvement of the head of the department of the Main Investigation Department of the SBU (currently the person holds a senior position in the Central Office of the State Bureau of Investigation), the head of the ARMA department, the management of the state enterprise “Setam”, as well as appraisers, organized illegal alienation of the right to claim a banking institution through the relevant national agency and state enterprise.
Individuals used forged official documents, provided and received improper benefits. Thanks to this, we achieved the buyout of the said property at a lower cost for a controlled legal entity.
The conclusions of the examinations confirm that the implementation of this criminal scheme caused damage to the banking institution in excess of UAH 112 million – this is the amount that makes up the difference between the real cost and the one paid by the attackers.
