In Transcarpathia members of the criminal group, who appropriated money of a credit union, were sentenced to 5 years imprisonment.
The verdict of the Mukachevo City Court in the criminal case concerning the organized criminal group, whose members using fake credit contracts appropriated money of the credit union "Syaivo Karpat," has entered into force.
In late September a female resident of Transcarpathia organized a criminal group, which included her two friends. One of the accomplices worked as the manager of the credit union branch. Over the past two years, they, without the knowledge of investors, were using their identification numbers, copies of passports and fake income certificate and forged credit agreements.
Thus, they were able to illegally make 52 personal loans totaling more than 200 thousand hryvnias, and all this using official data of poor Transcarpathians who did not even suspect that they had been issued credits.
However, the swindlers failed to avoid punishment – their criminal activities were exposed by the Office for Combating Organized Crime. At the trial, the prosecutor proved the thieves guilty and the court fully recognized this. For the committed offense under Part 5 of Art. 191 of the CCU (misappropriation, embezzlement of property, or obtaining it through abuse of office), Parts 2-3 of Art. 358 of the CCU (forgery) and Part 1 of Art. 366 of the CCU (forgery in office), the women received in total 5 years of imprisonment with deprivation of the right to occupy positions related to the management of money and forfeiture of property on probation for 3 years.
