Ukraine’s accounting chamber head suspected of unlawful real estate deal
Chief of the Ukrainian Prosecutor General's Office (PGO) Yuriy Lutsenko has signed a notice of suspicion concerning Head of the Accounting Chamber of Ukraine Roman Mahuta, who is suspected of privatizing an apartment illegally, Interfax Ukraine.
The suspicion relates to the illegal privatization of an apartment, and a criminal investigation pursuant to Article 364 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (exceeding authority or public office) has been opened, according to the PGO's Facebook page.
"A member of the Accounting Chamber with privatized real estate in Kyiv asked the head of the Accounting Chamber to provide living accommodations in central Kyiv. The law provides for granting living accommodations, not privatizing them," PGO spokeswoman Larysa Sarhan wrote on her Facebook page.
