Head of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAP) Nazar Kholodnytskyi says law enforcers will present new evidence in the case against MP Boryslav Rozenblat during today's session of the regulation committee of the Verkhovna Rada.

Kholodnytskyi said in an interview to Censor.NET.

"It will be an hour-long movie," Kholodnytskyi said.

He said that MP Poliakov, who is also a defendant in the Rozenblat case and whose immunity the regulation committee failed to lift yesterday, is just "an off-wheeler" in this case, but "it all started from him."

"This is proven in the investigation materials. It is true that the role of Poliakov actually ended with these $7,000. Later in the processes - of creation of companies and involving family members as founders of these companies - Rozenblat is the key figure," Kholodnytskyi said.

He added SAP was not able to reveal all materials at June 6 hearing on lifting Poliakov's immunity, but should be able to disclose more at the session on June 7.

As reported, NABU special agent Syvokin passed herself for an employee of Fujeirah, a UAE company interested in amber mining in Ukraine. For successful operations of her employer, Syvokin allegedly wanted to lobby amendments to Tax and Customs Codes.

On June 19, NABU detectives detained a bodyguard of Petro Poroshenko Bloc (PPB) MP Boryslav Rozenblat. The bodyguard was carrying a bag with $200,000 in cash. The MP called it a 'provocation.' NABU head Sytnyk announced later that his agency drafted a motion on lifting immunity of people's deputies Boryslav Rozenblat and Maksym Poliakov.

On June 22, Solomianskyi court has ruled to arrest another suspect in the so-called 'amber case,' Kostiantyn Proskurko, for 60 days.
