The Chief Military Prosecutor`s Office has summoned ex-head of the State Tax Service (2011-2012) and income and tax minister (2012 to 2014) Oleksandr Klymenko for investigative and procedural actions.
”The Chief Military Prosecutor`s Office of the Prosecutor General`s Office (PGO) is carrying out a special pre-trial investigation into criminal proceedings on suspicion of O. Klymenko of criminal offenses under Part 1 of Article 255 (creation of a criminal organization), Part 4 of Article 28 (commission of offense by a group of individuals, group of persons by prior conspiracy, an organized group or criminal organization), Part 5 of Article 191 (misappropriation, embezzlement of property or seizure through abuse of office), Part 4 of Article 28, Part 2 of Article 205 (a bogus company), Part 4 of Article 28, Part 1 of Article 366 (forgery) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine,” the report says.
The PGO says Klymenko is now summoned ”as a suspect in the pre-trial investigation authority for investigative and procedural actions.”
Klymenko must appear in the Chief Military Prosecutor`s Office at 10:00 local time on March 10, 2017 and March 14, 2017.
In September 2015, Ukrainian prosecutors said they suspected Klymenko based on two criminal proceedings related to illegal VAT refunds in the period of 2012-2013, having inflicted losses of UAH 3 billion on the state, as well as the establishment of money-laundering companies.
