As reported by Censor.NET citing Ukrainska Pravda, MP Oleksandr Onyshchenko (Volia Narodu parliamentary group), who is a target of this investigation, claims that the search is taking place in his MP's chamber.
"The search is currently underway. I am here as well. I have showed them all the papers. This is the formal MP's chamber but they continue behaving lawlessly," he said.
"They do it just to intimidate. They are just walking on the first floor smashing windows," the lawmaker wrote.
Earlier, the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine raided the office of MP Oleksandr Onyshchenko March 16. The NABU stated that the searches were carried out under the pretrial investigation of criminal case initiated into abuse of office during sale of the natural gas jointly extracted with Ukrhazvydobuvannia SE.
Anti-corruption prosecutor Nazar Kholodnytskyi previously promised "an interesting and hot week" in terms of investigation of high-profile corruption cases, while Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yurii Lutsenko promised going after "big fish".
