Because of the officials’ criminal intent to make money, 7 persons were attending classes during the year believing that they were students - prosecutors initiated criminal proceedings
The prosecutors of Transcarpathian region registered in the URPI the information about the abuse of power by officials of a private educational establishment (Part 1 of Art. 364-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine).
According to the Head of Department for the protection of rights and freedoms of children Olesya Bokoch, during the judicial inspection, it was revealed that employees of a private educational establishment, intending to make money, abusing official powers, had reported seven entrants that they had been enrolled as students.
