About it reports “Ukrainian News”.
Lawyer Oleksiy Shevchuk, who is representing Oleh Bakhmatyuk in a criminal case concerning refinancing of VAB Bank, today, 29 November, filed a complaint against NABU detective Pachevsky, who did not appear to provide access to the case files and rudely refused to grant this access. The complaint was sent to the head of the Internal Control Department Osipchuk R.S. and registered by senior investigator A. Haydanko. A review is currently underway.
Also commenting the situation to “Judicial Reporter” Oleksiy Shevchuk reported that “as part of this criminal proceeding, political pressure is put on his client. Because NABU and media are informed about Bakhmatyuk’s whereabouts for preventing further manipulation of the law enforcement agencies. On the contrary, it is not Bakhmatyuk who is hiding from the investigation, but NABU detectives do not want to carry out the necessary procedural actions with the participation of Oleg Bakhmatyuk, thereby violating his legal rights and interests”.
“VAB Bank” is one of the banks that were withdrawn from the market in 2016. The bank and the NBU officials are currently under criminal investigation opened by the NABU. Official expertise of mortgage valuation assessments reports of the Deposit Guarantee Fund, and the NBU’s statement on the use of refinancing to pay off depositors now refute the charges publicly raised by NABU to a businessman.
