As reported by Censor.NET, this was said by Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine, SAP Head Nazar Kholodnytskyi on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
"It was a lingering special operation, and it actually lasted from March. It turned out that he (Chaus - Ed.) received this money particularly yesterday, having previously avoided it several times. He accepted it outside the court, as far as I was reported. But these very bills that were handed over to him had been marked by us. This is actually the first operation to expose a corrupt official that was held solely by the NABU and SAP, without involvement of other law enforcement agencies," Kholodnytskyi said.
Earlier, NABU detectives nabbed Judge of the Dniprovskyi district court of Kyiv Mykola Chaus who was extorting and obtained an unlawful benefit in the amount of $150,000.
The corrupt judge cannot be apprehended or remanded until the parliament strips him of immunity.
Ill-famed Judge Chaus previously tried Euromaidan activists, convicted former Head of UKROP party Hennadii Korban, and made judgments in favor of Yanukovych's ally Yurii Ivaniushchenko also known in criminal world as Yura Yenakievskyi.
