 Lawyer says Nasirov stays in Feofania, moving him too risky

Suspended Chairman of the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine Roman Nasirov stays on the territory of Feofania hospital run by the State Management of Affairs.

"Roman Mikhailovich is in Feofania. His condition is currently stable," he said.

Asked whether Nasirov was operated, the lawyer said that this information could not be disclosed over doctor-patient confidentiality

"He is in the healthcare facility and there is no way he can be transported from it. We (the lawyers - Ed.) have been on the territory [of the hospital] all day long. No action has been taken so far since he is non-transportable," Stepanov said.

The lawyer also said that two NABU detectives stay outside Nasirov's ward.

Earlier, NABU and SAP agents arrived at Feofania hospital to serve an indictment for criminal offence against Ukraine's chief taxman Roman Nasirov. The doctors barred the investigators and prosecutor from entering the ward saying Nasirov had allegedly suffered a heart attack.

Nasirov is accused of taking unreasonable decisions on restructuring rental fees for the extraction of minerals, which helped Ukraine's fugitive MP Oleksandr Onyshchenko implement corruption schemes he is being charged with.

March 3, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine suspended Nasirov from office pending investigation. Myroslav Prodan was appointed acting head of the State Fiscal Service.

On March 16, 2016, the NABU raided the office of Verkhovna Rada MP Oleksandr Onyshchenko as part of a pre-trial investigation into abuse of office during the sale of natural gas extracted jointly with Ukrhazvydobuvannia SE.

Later, the NABU requested the Prosecutor General's Office (PGO) to strip Onyshchenko of immunity. Moreover, the NABU and the PGO claim Onyshchenko is involved in the embezzlement of 1.6 billion hryvnia ($64.02 million).

On June 16, Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko issued a motion requesting Verkhovna Rada's consent for criminal prosecution, arrest, and pre-trial detention of Onyshchenko. On July 5, the parliament approved the detention and arrest of the lawmaker.

It turned out Onyshchenko was in the U.K. at that moment and had already applied for political asylum.

On Dec. 1, 2016, the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) announced it suspected fugitive MP Onyshchenko of high treason. As noted, the MP acquired Russian citizenship in exchange for cooperation with Russian authorities to destabilize the situation in Ukraine. On the same day, Onyshchenko said he had provided compromising materials against President Poroshenko to the American intelligence authorities.
