Government removes State Fiscal Service Head Nasirov from office

The Government of Ukraine has removed Roman Nasirov from the post of the Head of the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine.

As an Ukrinform correspondent reports, the decision was approved at the Cabinet’s meeting at the suggestion of Finance Minister Oleksandr Danylyuk.

"I suggest suspending Roman Nasirov from his duties as the Head of the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine for the period of investigation," Danylyuk said.

"We are interested in unbiased and impartial investigation," Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman added.

As reported, Nasirov is suspected of abuse of office and embezzlement of public funds in the amount of over UAH 2 billion.

March 2, the National Anti-corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) and the Special Anti-corruption Prosecutor's Office of Ukraine (SAPU) held a number of raids in the State Fiscal Service's offices. Roman Nasirov is charged under Article 364 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (the abuse of power or official position). NABU suspects that the installment plan for rent payments for gas production, which had been approved by the State Fiscal Service, was part of the scheme by MP Oleksandr Onyshchenko's firms on misappropriation of funds PJSC Ukrgasvydobuvannia in the amount of UAH 740.07 million.
