The investigation of the crimes was transferred to the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) since such crimes are not the jurisdiction of NABU.
On April 15, NABU opened criminal proceedings on possible treason and other crimes by officials of the State Bureau of Investigation. This was reported by the press service of NABU.
NABU detectives have included into the Unified Register of Pre-Trial Investigations the information on the facts of possible commission of criminal offenses under Art. 111 (High treason), Part 3, Art. 109 (Actions aimed at forcibly changing or overthrowing the constitutional system or seizing state power), Part 2 of Art. 364 (abuse of power or official position), Part 2 of Art. 256 (Assistance to members of criminal organizations and concealing their criminal activities), Part 3 of Art. 382 (Failure of judgment) of the Criminal Code.
The investigation began in accordance with the decision of the Solomensky District Court of Kyiv, and on April 1, the proceedings were sent to the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office to determine the jurisdiction. The NABU noted that all of these crimes, with the exception of Art. 364, do not belong to the jurisdiction of the bureau.
The Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office identified that the Security Service of Ukraine could investigate possible crimes. Details of the production and names of suspects in the NABU were not reported. However, earlier, the Solomensky District Court of Kyiv ordered the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) to open a case against the Director of the State Bureau of Investigation, Roman Truba, on the fact of possible illegal actions, in particular, on suspicion of treason.
