On September 11, at 13.40, Chervonozavodsk District Court of Kharkiv will hold first court hearing regarding the case of “Avakov’s backpacks”.
This became known from Judiciary portal.
The court should consider agreement concluded by Volodymyr Lytvyn with investigation that he takes all the blame in the so-called “case of backpacks” upon himself. Lytvyn is currently the only suspect in the case.
Chief judge: Yezhov Viktor Anatoliyovych. Judges-board members: Yantsovska Tetyana Mykolayivna and Shelest Inna Mykolayivna.
We should recall that in July 2018, the SAPO prosecutor Krychun closed the proceeding in the “case of backpacks” regarding two subjects, the son of Minister of Internal Affairs Oleksandr Avakov and former Deputy Minister Serhii Chebotar due to the absence of “direct sufficient evidence”.
Both are involved in embezzlement of 14.5 million UAH for procurement of backpacks for the needs of the National Guard.
Later, the head of the SAPO, Nazar Kholodnytskyi, declared the decision to close the proceeding regarding the son and deputy of Avakov lawful.
