Officials, who cannot prove the origin of their property, will lose their jobs

Bodies of the SFS, in accordance with the Law of Ukraine "On lustration of power", check the property of officials and whether they could buy it for the official income. 
In particular, the tax inspectorate inspect officials at their place of residence, on the basis of the request for an inspection and a copy of the civil servant's declaration. Among other things, they analyze the available information on income, find out their sources, compare to the information stated in the declaration with that available to the controlling authority and more.

Simply put, every official must prove to the fiscal service that his or her official income is sufficient for the purchase of the property.  

If any discrepancy is found, the civil servant must provide a full explanation with mandatory submission of supporting documents that indicate the value of the property and the sufficiency of the officially income for its acquisition.

If inaccurate information on the available property or insufficiency of income for its acquisition is found, the SFS body sends a copy of the report on the audit for the official publication on the official website of the Ministry of Justice and entry into the Unified state register of persons to whom the provisions of the Law of Ukraine "On lustration of power" is applied.

Based on the audit report, whereby inaccurate information is found, the head of the agency, which initiated the inspection, removes such person from his post. 


It should be noted that the Procedure of lustration inspections, approved by the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine, provides that the information received from citizens, legal entities, NGOs is one of the sources of information about the property of officials authorized to perform state functions.

If you find a discrepancy or have any other information regarding the property of an official subject to inspection, report it to the tax office at the official's place of residence. Your information will be taken into account when forming the report.
