"I was questioned for four hours as a witness in the case filed into illicit enrichment," he said.
As reported by Censor.NET citing 112 Ukraine TV channel, the lawmaker says that no person involved in the case was allegedly determined. Therefore there was no subject for questioning. "We have provided the testimony to the NABU investigators," Liashko said.
"I am concerned about finding the truth and proving that this criminal case was trumped-up and I was definitely framed up. There is no ground to bring a case against me. There is even no fact of crime, they cannot name the fact that the case has been initiated into," he said.
Asked what the interview was actually about, Liashko said: "They asked who I live with, where I spend my time, asked about my wife, my mother."
Liashko's lawyer Andrii Mamalyha said the MP was interviewed into purchase of a house.
"But the address of the building was different while the prosecutor's office failed to check it. So they fell for emotion, and then decided to use this against Oleh Liashko and claimed that he allegedly unlawfully purchased it. The indictment has been served to no one so far," the lawyer said.
As reported, the anticorruption authorities initiated criminal proceedings into possible illicit enrichment by Radical Party parliamentary faction leader Oleh Liashko April 24.
