According to the investigation, the suspects tried to seize the premises of JSC “Ukrboshta” near the coastal protection area in Zatoka village and illegally alienate almost 280 hectares of agricultural land. Also, they functioned as part of an organized crime group.
To enforce the arrangement, its participants forged title deeds and registered the land for fictitious persons through a controlled notary. They then transferred the “reissued” state property to the ownership of an affiliated business structure.
Thanks to the prompt response of the SBU, it was possible to prevent the acquisition of state real estate worth tens of thousands of hryvnias. The buildings and adjacent territory of “Ukrposhta” on the Black Sea coast returned to the ownership of the state enterprise, and plots of land were seized.
Based on the evidence collected by the Security Service, the Deputy of the Regional Council was detained and declared suspect under several articles of the Criminal Code of Ukraine:
- Part 3 of Art. 28 (committing a crime by a group of persons, a pre-conspiracy, an organized group or a group of persons based on a criminal organization);
- Part 3, 4. 358 of art (sale or use of documents, seals, seals and forms, forged documents, seals, seals);
- Part 4 of Art. 190 (fraud committed especially on a large scale or by an organized group).
The court chose a preventive measure for him in detention with an alternative bail of 24.5 million hryvnias.
Forgery of documents and their use, fraudulent acquisition of state property and its legalization, suspected of being committed by an organized group based on a previous conspiracy, were reported to the concubine and her assistant. Both were remanded in custody with alternative bail in the amount of UAH 8 million.
