The PGO notes that "upon the results of reviewing the inquiry by MP Pavlo Pinzenyk regarding MP Serhii Leshchenko's illegal activities and other matters, the office for the investigation of particularly important cases of the PGO's Main Investigation Department entered the information in the Unified Register of pre-trial investigations on Oct. 27, 2016."
"A pre-trial investigation has been launched on the fact of the unjust enrichment of a person authorized to perform state functions, occupying a particularly responsible position," the PGO said.
Another inquiry with a request to examine the apartments of MPs Leshchenko and Svitlana Zalishchuk has been forwarded to the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office on Oct. 18. The inquiry was signed by six deputies, including Andrii Lozovyi and Dmytro Linko (Radical Party), Yevhen Deidei and Vadym Pidberezniak (People's Front) and Petro Poroshenko Bloc representative Serhii Kaplin.
The MPs argue they have analyzed the incomes of Petro Poroshenko Bloc deputies Serhii Leshchenko and Svitlana Zalishchuk and accuse them of being involved in corruption since the official incomes of these MPs would not allow them to purchase luxurious housing.
