Andriy Zhurzhiy: Roman Nasirov was reinstated as head of the State Fiscal Service. The behaviour of the government and the SFS is surprising

The district administrative court of Kyiv has reinstated Roman Nasirov as head of the SFS and ordered to pay him his salary for the period of his forced absenteeism.

We are talking about Nasirov’s lawsuit against the State Fiscal Service and the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine. The court decision itself has not yet been made public, but the lawyer of the ex-Chief of the Fiscal Service says that Nasirov is reinstated because there was a violation of the procedure in his dismissal.

A representative of the Samopomich parliamentary faction, Andriy Zhurzhiy, says that judging by the behaviour of one of the judges, the court had doubts about the authenticity of the fact that the ex-chairman of the SFS had United Kingdom citizenship.

Zhurzhiy says, “The behaviour of representatives of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and the Fiscal Service is rather surprising in this case. When being asked some questions by the court and Nasirov’s representative they didn’t actually provide answers to almost all of them, but indicated that they did not possess the information and that such information could be found in a particular department of their body.”

We shall recall that the National Anti-Corruption Bureau detained Roman Nasirov on March 2, 2017 on charges of causing damage to the state in the amount of 2 billion hryvnias. According to the investigators, he had provided unfounded tax instalments to the enterprises of MP Oleksandr Onyshchenko.

We shall add that the list of Roman Nasirov’s “achievements” is quite big. Andriy Zhurzhiy has been emphasizing this for years. It includes corruption with VAT refund, protection of conversion centres, criminal pressure on business through launching unfounded criminal proceedings, etc.
