In recent years the building of the SFS in the Dnipropetrovsk region was raided investigators, the State Bureau of investigation (UIR). Police opened two criminal proceedings on the facts of illegal actions of the management of regional fiscal services.
“The proceeding that has been commenced in the territorial Department of the RRG in Poltava region – it is claimed, are United in one manufacture. Was searched, was the seizure of documents in the Main office of the SFS in Dnipropetrovsk region, a consequence of work. Investigators on the production of interrogating witnesses, with whom you can establish contact,” said the public activist Oleksandr Omelchenko.
The history of seizure
The informant Money wrote that in early may this year, the company from the Dnieper “Soft oil” signed a contract for the supply of base oil to Ukraine. This oil is used for production of engine oils. 21 and may 23, in Nikolaev port includes two of the tanker, which was about 12 thousand tons of oil worth about $ 7 million.
The quality of raw materials is not in doubt. “SE OS “MASMA-SEPRO the” with confidence can assert that high-quality base oil SN-150 is used to obtain commercial oils including industrial, motor, compressor and other oils, greases and other lubricants by adding to such base oil with certain additives or additives,” – said in a letter to state-owned enterprises.
“Soft oil” had to pay some customs charges – more than 8 million UAH, and then something went wrong. Disappeared first Director of the enterprise “Soft oil” Kirill Suvorov and then the oil is arrested in the framework of criminal proceedings.
It turned out that businessman kept the sneaks on camp under the Dnieper river under the guise of witness protection program. Three weeks later, the Director of the company managed to escape, after which it became known that Suvorov demanded to leave the firm and goods, and, again, forced to sign some documents. Although at that time he was no longer head of the company. Documents on the management of the company managed to renew Dmitry Oleynik, but it came with the intermediaries offer hundreds of thousands of dollars to remove the arrest from raw materials to engine oils.
Who is to blame
Lawyers and leadership “Soft oil” believes that the kidnapping and seizure of goods involved personally Deputy head Department GFS in Dnipropetrovsk region Serhiy stumps. He actually confessed to the crime: “We can work it out somewhere to take out, to shut down there in the basement. But we understand that tomorrow it will turn against us. What we should not be contained. We just Selim to the recreation center on the outskirts of the Dnieper. And he just lives there”.
After escaping and loud publicity of this story in the media, began the fraud in the courts. The product was first arrested. Allegedly, the court of first instance went on about subordinates cannabic and arrested oil suspicion of fraudulent business. But how can it be bogus when there is a real product, paid for it fees and taxes?! In the appeal, arguments not passed, the decision of the court of first instance annulled. Then of fictitious investigators decided to add the legalization of income obtained by illegal means and tax evasion. Although this accusation does not hold water. Meanwhile, the case of the Zhovtnevy district court threw in the Industrial district court of the Dnieper, and the investigation team of the tax police of the Dnieper actually settled on the farm in the Mykolayiv region, which kept the oil. Resort tax ended July 4, withdrawal of the total volume of the oil company “Soft oil”.
“The tax police of Nikolaev made an attempt for cloning of criminal proceedings in Nikolaev, tried within it to seize. The Central district court dismissed the garnishment, stating that the criminal proceedings are opened with gross violations of the criminal procedure code,” said lawyer Roman Suvorov’s Grave.
What is happening now
After setbacks in the courts, the tax authorities began to persecute Dmitry Oleynik (recall that he Suvorov handed over management of the company “Soft oil”). Last week they came to work to the pregnant wife of the businessman and tried to deliver a notification on suspicion. “Just immoral it looked. Came to work for her, where everyone saw it. Under pressure. Saw that the wife is in position. Well, despite that they have, I understand, is the goal that they pursue. They pursued initially. Whether to take possession of these goods, or to obtain some financial benefit,” – said Dmitry Oleynik.
Despite such lawlessness on the part of the Fiscals, all the actions of the entrepreneurs are within the law. So Dmitry with a lawyer came voluntarily to the investigator. There the businessman announced on suspicion of making the alleged false information during the registration of the company and was summoned for questioning, which is scheduled for Monday, August 12. “What the documents were forged and how it could be faked, the suspicion about it is nothing. It was absolutely legal registration of the company by its owner, the Director of which is Mr. Dmitry,” – said the lawyer Andrei Mechanic.
