Now the law enforcement officers are determining the amount of damages, as well as all the persons involved in the crime.
An official of one of the state sanatoriums in the Chervonohrad district, who developed a criminal enrichment scheme, was exposed by the investigators of the general criminal investigation department of the police of the Lviv region together with operatives of the Security Service of Ukraine under the procedural guidance of the Lviv regional prosecutor’s office.
As the law enforcement officers established, the sanatorium was supposed to accept forced migrants for free temporary accommodation, but the chief accountant of the institution demanded money from them for settlement. Having received an illegal benefit, the perpetrator issued falsified receipts for housing payments, and took the money for herself.
The investigators informed her of the suspicion of committing a crime provided for in Part 3 of Article 368 (Acceptance of an offer, promise or receiving an unlawful benefit by an official) and Part 1 of Article 366 (Official forgery) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. The maximum penalty provided by the sanctions of the articles is imprisonment for a term of up to ten years with deprivation of the right to hold certain positions or engage in certain activities for a term of up to three years, with confiscation of property.
The pre-trial investigation is ongoing.
