The NACP did not see
the conflict of interests in actions of the head of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office Nazar Kholodnytskyi, who made the decision in the criminal proceeding
, whose subject is his friend.
In April 2018, the media published the video
on which Oleksandr Bogachev, the assistant to the Member of Parliament of Ukraine Oleg Lyashko, along with the Mayor of Chernivtsi Ilya Dikov offered the bribe to acting Minister of Healthcare of Ukraine Ulyana Suprun. This case was investigated
by the NABU.
It turned out that at some time Kholodnytskyi worked
with Dikov in the law enforcement system of Kyiv-Svyatoshyn district. Later, he even led the prosecutor's personal case, where Dikov using connections, secured opening of the criminal case
against his debtor, where there were no sign of the crime.
Despite such connections with the subjects, Kholodnytskyi personally replaced one and selected other prosecutors to the case, where the subject was his longtime colleague Dikov. Such decision grossly violates the law. Kholodnytskyi was obliged to remove himself from any decisions in this case, having the conflict of interests.
by the NABU so-called "aquarium" tape recordings clearly recorded how the head of the SAPO gave directions to the prosecutor how to help Dikov
to avoid responsibility.
One month before results of the NACP, Kholodnytskyi refused
for the second time to agree the suspicion to the member and former head of the agency Nataliya Korchak. Thus, it didn't see such obvious violation and the NACP thanked Kholodnytskyi.
