Separately, SAP noticed that none of the suspects in respect of whom granted permission for the implementation of the special pre-trial investigation, is not prohibited entry into Ukraine, and they have the opportunity to defend their position in criminal proceedings.

“Harboring the same suspects for more than 6 months outside of Ukraine and the requirements of articles 2, 9, 28 code of criminal procedure, which require including the Prosecutor to ensure the implementation of the pre-trial investigation and the investigative and procedural actions within a reasonable time, forced the prosecution to elect just such a form of pre-trial investigation in order to achieve the purpose of criminal proceedings and bringing guilty persons to criminal responsibility”, – concluded the Prosecutor’s office.

We will remind, Alexander Onishchenko suspected of organizing schemes to the embezzlement of funds in the extraction and sale of natural gas in the framework of joint operation agreements with PJSC “Ukrgasdobycha”, which was caused to the state damage for the sum about 3 billion UAH.

5 July 2016 the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine gave consent to bringing him to justice, detention and arrest. However, on the eve of the vote, taking advantage of the status of MP, Onishchenko left the territory of the state.

On 27 July the Prosecutor General of Ukraine signed the message on suspicion to the people’s Deputy. 8 August was declared national search.
