Two high-ranking officials at the Prosecutor General’s Office were arrested this week after a sting operation revealed $400,000 in cash, securities, jewelry (including 65 diamonds) and a Kalashnikov automatic rifle in their offices.
But many believe the two suspects will be able to evade justice after
the acting Prosecutor General Volodymyr Huzyr nearly foiled the raid.
Bail has already been set for the pair, deputy head of the office’s
Central Investigations Department, Volodymyr Shapakin, and the deputy
chief prosecutor for Kyiv Oblast, Oleksandr Korniets. Shapakin was
released on bail on July 9.
