The press service of the Kyiv Prosecutor’s office informs about sending to the court an indictment on the fact of fraudulent seizure of two real estate objects in the center of Kyiv worth more than 6.5 million hryvnias ($240 000).
“The pre-trial investigation established that in 2018, a man took possession of two non-residential premises on M. Hrushevskoho Street, which belonged to the territorial community of the Kyiv city on the basis of forged certificates of ownership. In the future, in order to conceal the illegal seizure of one of the real estate objects, the offender added it to the authorized capital of a legal entity where he is a director, ” the report says. – Now the indictment under Part 4 of Article 190 (fraud committed on a particularly large scale), Part 4 of Article 358 (use of a deliberately forged document), Part 1 of Article 209 (legalization of income derived from criminal activity) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine was
sent to The Kyiv Pechersk District Court for consideration on the merits.”
In addition, defending the interests of the Metropolitan Community, the local prosecutor’s office appealed to the court with a claim for reclaiming premises from the illegal property. The specified property was seized.
The accused faces a sentence of imprisonment for a term of 5 to 12 years with confiscation of property.
