The accusations are voiced by Ukrainian Chief Military Prosecutor Anatolii Matios
Some staff members of Ukraine's Interpol Bureau reportedly interfered with the process of sending materials to head office office, which are needed to declare individuals wanted. This is according to Ukrainian Chief Military Prosecutor Anatoly Matios.
‘The problem is, the Ukrainian office would decide whether to send the documents to the head office of Interpol, or even send them back to the investigators. We have official evidence and documents', Matios said during a local political talk-show on TV.
He also said that for their interference these staff members received money, which Matios called bribes.
‘We have evidence that for every such case, excuse me, faux improper benefits were paid and are still paid, at certain times, every month, which are factually bribes', Matios claimed.
He said the Prosecution will make ‘a procedural decision' regarding the Ukrainian office, after it examines the materials on the possible crimes, committed by certain local staff members.
