The National Bank of Ukraine provided the law enforcement agencies with information regarding offences committed in the banking sector on 127 occasions over the ten months of 2016, according to the central bank`s website.

In October 2016, the National Bank of Ukraine provided  access to the documents and items of evidence required to investigate criminal offences committed in the banking sector on 13 occasions.

Such access was provided upon the request of the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine – on two occasions; the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine  – on two occasions; the Security Service of Ukraine  – on two occasions; the National Police of Ukraine – on three occasions; and the Prosecutor General`s Office – on four occasions.

As a side note, in March 2015, the Ukrainian parliament passed a law On Amendments to Certain Legal Acts of Ukraine on the Responsibility of Bank`s Related Parties  which imposed criminal responsibility on the bank managers and owners for actions that led to the bank`s insolvency, thereby causing  material damage to the State or a creditor.
