The British Embassy in Ukraine on June 16 lambasted a Ukrainian court ruling in favor of ex-State Fiscal Service Chief Roman Nasirov, and said it could try him – a U.K. citizen – in the United Kingdom.

Nasirov, a protégé of President Petro Poroshenko, is suspected of illegally allowing participants of an alleged corrupt scheme at state gas producer Ukrgazvydobuvannya to delay tax payments, causing losses to the state of Hr 2 billion ($74 million).

“We are deeply concerned about the recent decision in Kyiv’s Solomyansky Court, where evidence provided by the UK in relation to the case against Roman Nasirov was ruled inadmissible and disregarded,” the embassy said in posts on social media. “The UK authorities will now review the facts and consider if criminal offences have been committed by a British citizen which may be tried in the UK.”
