"Today, Sept. 19, 2018, SAP members once again discovered bugs illegally planted in the agency’s courtyard by the NABU employees. Besides, a FORD minibus with license plate AA2564MB with NABU members inside it, who were carrying out illegal wiretapping, was spotted outside the agency’s office. The said vehicle was blocked by the police officers and members of the Department of the State Guard of Ukraine in order to hold investigative and prosecutorial activities," the SAP press service said in a statement, Censor.NET reports.
"In order to prevent his employees from being exposed, to avert detection of unauthorized and unregistered bugging devices, Artem (Sytnik – Ed.) deployed armed NABU commandos who used force against the law enforcement officers, damaged property, and hampered investigative and prosecutorial activities.
"During these events, NABU employees ran down with a car several law enforcement officers inflicting injuries on them and damaging someone else’s property.
"All these actions were captured on camera so that everyone would be able to see them with their own eyes.
SAP calls on the international partners not to be misled by provocations staged by Artem Sytnyk, but to provide an objective assessment to this incident. Sytnyk’s efforts turned the NABU’s ‘mandate of credibility’ into a ‘mandate for impunity’. The presence of such a person in the office of the NABU director is inconsistent with the tasks of this law-enforcement agency," SAP said.
