Unreported officials’ assets should be seized, MP Herashchenko says

The assets that the officials failed to properly declare should be confiscated.

As reported by Censor.NET, this was said by MP Anton Herashchenko on air of a 112 Ukraine TV channel.

According to the lawmaker, the officials who committed such an offense face up to a two-year suspended sentence. Moreover, no verdict has been passed under such charges over the past 3 years while the officials kept all the unreported assets.

"When the lawmakers passed this bill back in 2014, they forgot to mention that it had to take a bite out of the things that are most highly valued [by corrupt officials] – assets and money. The unreported assets must be seized. The suspended sentences would no longer be needed then. If the punishment is confiscation of property, everyone will include it into their assets statements. Another question is whether the Verkhovna Rada would pass such a bill. I guess it would not," the MP said.
