Today, on September 5, since very morning the Main Office of Investigation of the National Police in the Kyiv oblast were conducting a search in the headquarters of NPC Ukrenergo (25 & 27 Petliury Street, Kyiv). Law enforcement officers halted the work in the company for several hours in the morning; now employees returned to their jobs, law enforcement officers are seizing documents and were given access to office equipment.
Search was also conducted in the homes of five middle and high level managers of the Company. The Company’s management and employees comply with all the requirements of law enforcement and cooperate fully in the course of the investigation.
The search warrant was issued by the Pechersk District Court of Kyiv nearly four weeks ago (August 12) as part of the criminal proceedings that opened ten months prior – in October 2018.
The search is based on the police’s assumption of potential violations during public procurement of goods and works that the Company did back in 2016. It is still unclear what kind of offenses Ukrenergo employees are suspected of and what damage they have caused.
