Ukrainian Court Arrests Top Tax Official

Ukrainian Court Arrests Top Tax Official

Tuesday, 07 March 2017 02:40 AM

MOSCOW (AP) — A court in Ukraine's capital has placed a top tax official under arrest pending trial on embezzlement charges.

A 14-hour hearing closed early Tuesday when the Kiev district court ruled to send Roman Nasirov, chief of the Ukrainian Fiscal Service, to pre-trial detention for two months. Nasirov will be granted house arrest if he pays $3.7 million, an unheard-of bail in Ukraine.

The Ukrainian government suspended Nasirov pending an investigation, alleging that the tax chief defrauded the state of 2 billion hryvnias ($74 million). The National Anti-Corruption Bureau said Nasirov signed off on grace periods for a number of taxpayers— including companies linked to a former lawmaker who fled abroad last year while facing a corruption investigation.
