Answering a question on where Onyshchenko might be at the moment, the head of the SAP said: "The law stipulates for absolute immunity for people's deputies, no one has the right to monitor them or to conduct surveillance, because it is illegal; so now he is free to move wherever he wants.... Some say he is in Ukraine, others say he's in Monaco now."

Kholodnytskyi also thanked Prosecutor General Lutsenko for timely drafting of the documents.

The large scale embezzlement and creation of a crime ring inflicted damage to the state in the amount of almost 3 billion hryvnia. The investigators suspect this crime ring to be run by Onyshchenko.

Anti-Corruption Prosecutor Nazar Kholodnytskyi has already drafted a motion on Oleksandr Onyshchenko's arrest.
