Board of doctors hold a meeting in Feofania hospital on transportation of suspended Chairman of the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine Roman Nasirov, Censor.NET reports citing 112 TV Channel.
Lawyers say that the board of doctors hold a meeting in Feofania hospital at about 10 a.m. At the same time, the NABU employees are ready to transport Nasirov. They are just waiting for the doctors' decision.
Later today, Nasirov's lawyer Ihor Cherezov reported that his client is no longer in the hospital. At the same time, he knows nothing about whereabouts of Nasirov.
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.
