According to him, during 2006-2012, the suspected officials illegally passed land plots into the ownership of their friends and relatives as well as certain right people from Kyiv. In particular, former Verkhovna Rada First Deputy Chairman Ihor Kaletnyk was given 14 hectares of forest land.
"Interestingly, after the PGO, following the Revolution of Dignity, returned the land back to the state via court, the land dealers resumed the seizure. Thanks to public activists, MPs, and the efforts of law enforcers, we have put an end to the stealing behind high fence," Lutsenko said.
Earlier, the PGO conducted searches of the premises of Bucha Mayor Fedoruk. Irpin Mayor Karpliuk has fled the country.
As reported, dozens of premises have been searched as part of investigation into the seizure of Bucha forest.
