Pavlo Vovk
33 departures abroad during three years, connections with Sergiy Kivalov and Oleksandr Granovskyi, as well as collections of elite watches, paintings, coins and stamps. Moreover, the NABU is investigating alleged fictitious divorce in order to conceal assets.

Pavlo Vovk resigned position of the chairman of DACK on August 1. He has been chairman of this court since 2010, and before this he has worked in the prosecutor's office for the short period of time. If we take into account released tape recordings, he protected his subordinates who had made "right" decisions, for instance, evaluation by the HQCJ.
  • Connections with politicians
    Prior to his career as the judge, Vovk worked as the assistant to MP Sergiy Kivalov, who headed the Parliamentary Committee on Justice of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine at that time. When he held position of the judge, he was noticed to have relations with Oleksandr Granovskyi, MP of Ukraine from Petro Poroshenko Bloc (media called the politician "curator" in the prosecutor's office and courts from authorities).

    It is worth to note that Vovk received Fort 17 pistol from the Minister of Internal Affairs in 2014.
  • "The apartment issue"
    During six years (2011-2017) when Vovk has been the chairman, nine of his subordinates received service apartments. Five out of nine apartments were deprived the status of service apartments. Later they were privatized. Activists described the scheme according to which privatization took place. Namely: quite large apartments in new buildings were declared unfit for living, "because their usage requires material investments".

    In 2004, according to conclusion of the PIC, Vovk himself also used his right to privatize the apartment. And then he as the judge received another apartment that had been privatized and sold later.
  • Doubtful assets
    According to conclusion of the Public Integrity Council, which had evaluated Vovk during competition to the Supreme Court in 2017, he made 33 trips abroad (including trips to famous world resorts) during three years (2012-2015). And his ex-wife made 31 trips. He used charter flight at least once. In general, the Public Integrity Council calculated that Vovk has been outside Ukraine for more than six months during that period.

    Also, at that time the PIC questioned the legality of origin of family members' funds: almost third part of the amount was "gifts, prizes, winnings" in 2014. At the same time, declaration also included one million hryvnias from entrepreneurship: his wife earned this money for less than 3.5 months from the moment of registration of her entrepreneurship.
  • Fictitious divorce
    In 2017, the HQCJ decided to transfer materials to the NACP regarding possible Vovk's corruption. But there they decided that declaration of chairman of DACK had neither administrative nor criminal offenses.

    At the same time, the Public Integrity Council concluded that Vovk's divorce in 2015 was probably fictitious in order to hide assets from declaring.
