In the case of records of interviews that the brother of the assistant to the President of Ukraine, and now head of the Office of the President Andrey Ermak Denis conducted with candidates for public office, transferred to the National police, discovered corruption. In an interview with HB, which was published on 28 may, said the head of the Specialized anti-corruption prosecutors Nazar Golodnitsky.
According to him, when the MP from the “public Servants” geo Leros came and a statement that Denis Ermak takes bribes and promises to appoint people to public office through his influential brother, the investigators looked at all the records.
“We have to understand that there is a legal component, as is the media. Media all beautifully looked – brother assistant to the President takes bribes for appointment to office. But the legal component over the fact that all those who promised to arrange was not assigned. And during the interrogation, denied the fact of corruption,” said Holodnitsky.
Head of SAP added that the weakness of the prosecution was the employee of security service Sergey Shumskiy and lawyer Dmitry Shtanko who appear in the films.
“We listened to so-called partners brother Denis. Prosecutors realized that they were lying. Because the person in the video out of his pants sticking a hidden camera in the interrogation claimed that he did not know who was shooting. My question is: can he be a strong witness for the prosecution? Of course not,” – said the head of anti-corruption Agency.
“When you see that the prosecution is weak and not confirmed no undue influence, no bribery, no purpose, then what was it? In addition, there is no such office in the state as the brother of the assistant to the President,” added Holodnitsky.
On March 29, the people’s Deputy from “public Servants” geo Leros released a video in which Denis Ermak supposedly discussing the appointment of people to public office.
Andrey Ermak threatened Leros investigation. His brother called the recording “rolls” and the handiwork of fraudsters.
