Over half a million hryvnias - "in the trash"
Employees of the "Kovatekhbud" and Uzhgorod District State Administration appropriated over half a million of budget funds
Prosecutors of Transcarpathian Region opened the investigation into a criminal offense over appropriation of public funds amounting to almost 510,000 UAH by officials of the "Kovatekhbud" in collusion with officials of Uzhgorod DSA (Part 3 of Art. 191 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine).
It was established that employees of the "Kovatekhbud" decided to cash out of public funds allocated from the Special Fund of the State Budget of Ukraine for the reconstruction of a landfill.
Officials of the company, by prior agreement with the officials of Uzhgorod district state administration, through the abuse of their official position, in 2011, during construction work on the reconstruction of the territory of the landfill in the village of Barvinok in Uzhgorod district, indicated in the contract work completion report and certificate incorrect information on the cost of works performed by overvaluing it. Thus, the officers appropriated the public funds amounting to over half a million hryvnias.
