NABU to verify allegations of Lutsenko's real estate graft

Following numerous requests by media and public organizations, the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine has launched an analytical verification of information on a failure to comply with the requirements of anti-corruption legislation when buying and using immovable property on Esplanadna Street in Kyiv.

Censor.NET reports citing NABU's press service.

As noted, the check is caused by recent assumptions in media that Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko's son Oleksandr may be the ultimate beneficiary of income from the use of commercial premises at the said address.

"Given the published information, there is not enough reasons for entering data in the Unified Register of pre-trial investigations. However, under the current legislation (law of Ukraine on the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine), the NABU has launched a verification of the information for indications of possible corruption," the statement notes.

The bureau has promised to announce the results of the check in the near future.
