The Prosecutor General’s Office opened the criminal proceeding regarding disclosure of the notice of suspicion to Demchyna

Following the Anti-Corruption Action Center’s appeal, the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine opened the criminal proceeding regarding disclosure of information of the pre-trial investigation to the first deputy head of the Security Service of Ukraine Pavlo Demchyna. This concerns the case of his possible illicit enrichment.

The PGO reported about the opening of criminal proceeding on the grounds of the crime classified under Part 2 Article 387 of the Criminal Code – disclosure of information of the investigation, committed by the prosecutor or the investigator.

“The PGO will investigate the disclosure of details regarding the investigation to Pavlo Demchyna both by SAPO and NABU. Although, Demchyna learned about the notice of suspicion after NABU had sent its draft to SAPO a year and a half after its investigation”, commented Andriy Savin, the AntAC’s lawyer.

We should recall that on September 13, the spokeswoman of the SBU Olena Hitylyanska, stated that “illegal” notice of suspicion was being prepared to Pavlo Demchyna.

Demchyna himself filed a crime statement to the Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko, regarding allegedly committed offense against him by certain NABU detectives.

Later, NABU confirmed that they were preparing the notice of suspicion to the first deputy head of the SBU, Pavlo Demchyna.

After that, the Specialized Anticorruption Prosecutor’s Office published on the official Facebook page the text of the notice of suspicion prepared by detectives of NABU.

We should note that NABU investigates possible illicit enrichment of the first deputy head of the SBU, Pavlo Demchyna.

In particular, during 1999-2015 Demchyna and the person with whom he has been co-living since 2011, had a total income of about 2.8 million UAH. At the same time, NABU states that expenses in the same period amounted to at least 4.83 million UAH, including 4.1 million UAH spent on cars.
