"A search is underway in the house of Maksym Cherkasenko. The equipment and documents are being seized. The lawyers were denied entry. They had to climb over the fence to get in," he wrote.
Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction MP, a member of the Democratic Alliance political council Mustafa Nayyem aslo commented on the raid: "The court issued a warrant to search the house of a Democratic Alliance leader Maksym Cherkasenko. The search was conducted by members of the Main Investigations Directorate of the National Police of Ukraine - a total of 12 law enforcers not including search witnesses. The search witnesses were found in Petrivka (one of Kyiv neighborhoods - Ed.) back yesterday.
"The lawyers were barred from being present during the search. Maksym and his wife's correspondence was copied from all data storage devices at the very beginning of the search, although its formal objective was to seize computers, mobile phones, hard drives, flash drives, which were used for unauthorized intervention in operation of Setam online trading system, where Maksym's wife holds an office."
In turn, Setam CEO Viktor Vyshniov told Censor.NET that the information published by MP Nayyem was incorrect: "Such person has never worked for Setam SE."
