Organised group suspected of misappropriation of funds during renovation of hospital in Stryi region

Under the procedural supervision of prosecutors of the Lviv Regional Prosecutor’s Office, three members of the organised group were served suspicion notices. The deputy, the hospital director and the head of a private enterprise are charged with misappropriation of budget funds and forgery of official documents (Part 3 of Article 28, Part 1 of Article 366, Part 5 of Article 191 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine).

According to the investigation, a local deputy in Stryi district organised and implemented a scheme to misappropriate funds during the construction of a hospital building.

For this purpose, he engaged the director of one of the district’s city hospitals and a “necessary” business entity with which a contract was concluded.

To create the appearance of the MP’s legal authority at the site, he was appointed technical director of the project.

Subsequently, the director of the private enterprise entered false information into the acceptance certificates for the construction work performed and certificates of its cost. The latter overstated the amount of work performed, materials used, and their cost. In turn, an official of the medical institution approved and signed the illegal documents.

As a result, the contractor was unjustifiably paid almost UAH 800 thousand.

The director of the hospital was suspended from performing his duties.

The pre-trial investigation is being carried out by investigators of the Main Department of the National Police in Lviv region with operational support from the SID in Lviv region of the National Police of Ukraine.

Note: In accordance with Article 62 of the Constitution of Ukraine, a person is presumed innocent of committing a crime and shall not be subjected to criminal punishment until his or her guilt is proved in accordance with the law and established by a court verdict of guilty.
