The General Prosecutor's Office of Ukraine officially confirmed information regarding the detention of employees of the State Land Registry office in Transcarpathian region, who demanded from a private entrepreneur money for the allocation of land plots in Volovets district of Transcarpathian region.
The pre-trial investigation established that in February 2018 a private entrepreneur appealed to an employee of the Main Office of the State Land Registry in Transcarpathian region regarding the purchase or allocation of land for free for the construction of a ski resort and a hotel on the territory of Volovets district in Transcarpathian region.
The said official colluded with his direct manager to obtain an unlawful benefit. In order to execute their criminal intent, aimed at obtaining unlawful benefit, in early March 2018, the employee of the State Land Registry in Transcarpathian region told the private entrepreneur that at that time it was impossible to obtain land plots for the construction of a ski resort and hotel, and described the way which would enable him to acquire the right of land ownership after a certain period of time.
The employees of the Main Office of the State Land Registry in Transcarpathian region asked for their assistance in obtaining land plots 270,000 USD. On 02.05.2018, after receiving the second part of the unlawful benefit in the amount of 117,500 USD, the two criminals were detained by law enforcers.
The said persons were notified of being suspected under Part 4 of Art. 368 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine - receipt of an unlawful benefit by an official, under prior conspiracy of a group of persons, in a particularly large amount.
