Oleksandr Klymenko former Minister of revenues and duties and the leader of the party “uspishna Kraina”, currently has the status of a suspect. Accordingly, all actions of the General Prosecutor’s office, which carried out investigation in respect of the policy, are illegal, and resonant statement of the leadership of the General Prosecutor’s office is a PR and political persecution. About it today on a press-conferences in Kiev were reported by the lawyers protecting the interests of Oleksandr Klymenko.

Recall, 23 August 2016, the Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko made a number of loud statements concerning the investigation into ex-Minister of incomes and fees of Ukraine, including the amount of caused damage, according to him, in the amount of 198 billion. Earlier in different years representatives of the Prosecutor General claimed various sums allegedly caused damage from 616 million to 6 billion.

“Criminal prosecutions of Oleksandr Klymenko is purely politically motivated. Within two years, there are differing charges are called different amounts, which vary depending on the speaker and the political situation. But they do not fully correspond to the information that is presented in the case and available lawyers,” says Elena Klimenko, representing the interests of the ex-Minister.

Lawyers Klimenko emphasize that they are only known about two criminal proceedings. One of them, according to the article 364 of the criminal code – abuse of authority causing damage in the form of no tax revenues to the budget of $ 126 million – is being investigated since April 2014 and now, as far as is known, suspended. Second, under article 191 part 5 of the criminal code – assistance in the illegal appropriation of 616 million UAH in compensation, a business entity is VAT – was launched in December 2014.

On the investigative judge twice – in February and August 2016, vozvraste the investigator of GPU the application for a special pre-trial investigation, according to advocates. In addition, in February 2016, the consequence is denied Klimenko election of a measure of restraint in form of detention. The basis for such court decisions was that Klymenko is not acquired in the manner prescribed by law the status of the suspect, as well as numerous and substantial violations of the criminal process, admitted during the preliminary investigation.

About political persecution, say lawyers, is the fact that Interpolate has repeatedly blocked information on the international wanted list Klimenko. Since under the Constitution of this organization, it is prohibited to carry out search of persons persecuted for political reasons. In addition, like Elena Klimenko, General court of the European Union in its decision of 10 June ruled that the EU Council decision of 14 April 2014 “concerning restrictive measures directed against certain persons, entities and bodies in view of the situation in Ukraine declared invalid in the context of Mr. Alexander Klimenko”.

At the same time, according to lawyers Klimenko, about the damage 198 bln. which said the leadership of the Prosecutor General, defense does not know anything except the information that was presented in the media. “If the Prosecutor’s office will continue to throw these loud but unsubstantiated statements, we will have no choice as to file a lawsuit on protection of honor and business reputation of our client”, – said the lawyer Klimenko. Earlier, the protection of Oleksandr Klymenko has already won similar claims against a number of representatives of the Ukrainian authorities made unsubstantiated claims against the policy.

According to the lawyer Sergei Voichenko, representing the interests of ex-officials of the tax authorities about the detention of which not less loudly said attorney General August 10, “the so-called “case of Yanukovych,” – is nothing more than one big PR stunt”

We are talking about the so-called case No. 400, which, according to the lawyer, currently has more than 200 volumes and consists of 133 episodes. “Criminal proceedings were registered on 31 January 2013, i.e. the so-called “criminal regime of Yanukovych”. In this case the people are detained in August 2016. Who is detained? People who lived peacefully in Kiev and guilty only in the fact that he worked during the presidency of Yanukovych. For example, one of the detainees – a woman-a pensioner has worked in tax since 1989 – and during the time of Gorbachev, worked at Kravchuk, Kuchma, Yushchenko. It can even blame the coup putsch? Not accusing all and in all. That all who worked under Yanukovych – all criminals. The pace in “criminals” can be recorded and the 12 million people who voted in the presidential election,” says Voychenko.

In the so-called “business of OPG Yanukovych” a lot of reaching to the absurd episodes. So, according to the lawyer, in three episodes indicated that the crime was allegedly committed by the person on 1 January 1900 birth. Also an accomplice in the crime, for instance,is the person on 25 July 2016 born.

All this to say, according to the lawyer, not only about the incompetence of the prosecution, but also the political motivation of the case and the willingness of individual heads of the Prosecutor General to make a political career. In addition, the lawyer does not exclude that under the pretext of the criminal proceedings “attempting a large redistribution of capital.”
