Customs office is being "shaken"
The Prosecutor's Office in Transcarpathian region began pre-trial investigations of the criminal proceedings under Part 2 of Art. 364 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (the abuse of power or position, leading to serious consequences) and Part 1 of Art. 361 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (unauthorized interference with operation of computers (PCs), automated systems, computer networks or telecommunication networks) with respect to the Chop customs officials over unlawful acts due to which the state budget lost nearly 400,000 UAH.
Currently, it has been established that customs officials, abusing their office, intentionally registered the information on customs clearance of goods on the basis of non-existent declarations and statements.
