Prosecutor General’s Office asks court to convict in absentia ex-PM Azarov

The Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine has submitted to the Pecherskyi District Court in Kyiv the motion to allow convicting in absentia former prime minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov and former fuel and energy minister of Ukraine Eduard Stavytsky.

Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuri Lutsenko said this during the international workshop on assets recovery, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"We have completed the investigation and submitted a motion to the Pecherskyi District Court in Kyiv to allow conducting proceedings in absentia against Azarov and Stavytsky. We are waiting for the relevant permission from the court for conviction in absentia," Lutsenko said.

At the same time, he forecasted the investigation into the case against former vice-prime minister Serhiy Arbuzov would be completed next month and the Prosecutor General's Office would send a motion to the court to allow convicting him in absentia.

In addition, Lutsenko stressed that the investigation into criminal proceedings against oligarch Serhiy Kurchenko and ex-minister of income and taxes Oleksandr Klymenko would also be completed.

The Prosecutor General expressed hope that the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine, in its turn, would submit to the court the case against former ecology and natural resources minister of Ukraine Mykola Zlochevsky.
