NABU Entered Information on First Three Criminal Proceedings into Unified Registry of Pretrial Investigations

On December 4, NABU detectives entered information on their first three criminal proceedings into the Unifed Registry of Pretrial Investigations. Combined, the cases involve state enterprise embezzlement schemes for a total amount of approximately UAH 1 billion. Even though NABU has now been fully functional for more than three years, a number of needed legislative changes concerning the Bureau’s work are still lacking (in particular, to provide for its right to independently lift the information from transportable telecommunications networks). In addition, NABU’s capacity was limited following the Criminal Procedure Code amendments known as the so-called “Lozovyi Amendments”, whose negative impact has been noted by experts.
