NBU provided law enforcers with access to information on 155 occasions in 2016

In 2016, the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) 155 times opened access for the law enforcement agencies to information in the scope of financial criminal investigations in the banking sector, the press service of the central bank reports.

The NBU most closely cooperated with the General Prosecutor's Office and the National Police of Ukraine.

In particular, in December 2016, the NBU provided access on 15 occasions to the documents and items of evidence required to investigate criminal offences committed in the banking sector. Such access was provided upon the request of: the General Prosecutor's Office - on six occasions; the National Police of Ukraine - on six occasions; the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine - on two occasions; and the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine - on one occasion.

A reminder that in March 2015, the Ukrainian parliament passed a law “on amendments to certain legal acts of Ukraine on the responsibility of bank's related parties” which imposed criminal responsibility on the bank managers and owners for actions that led to the bank's insolvency, thereby causing material damage to the State or a creditor.
