CEC Head Okhendovskyi’s interview on Party of Region’s slush funds postponed, - lawyer

Andrii Smirnov, the legal counsel of Ukraine’s Central Election Commission Chairman Mykhailo Okhendovskyi, says that the simultaneous interview of his client with another person in the case of the Party of Regions’ off-the-book payments has been postponed.

Censor.NET reports citing Ukrainski Novyny.

According to Smirnov, the defense requested to interview the member of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAP), who failed to come.

The detective took into account the motion and postponed the questioning.

The date of the next interview is unknown so far.

Earlier, the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) and SAP served Okhendovskyi a notice of suspicion of accepting $160,000 in bribe from the Party of Regions.

Okhendovskyi's lawyer Andrii Smirnov believes that the case of the so-called slush funds of the Party of Region's is a losing battle while the notice of suspicion to CEC chairman itself is legally unsound.
