REPORTS: CHIEF JUSTICE OF UKRAINE SUPREME COURT ARRESTED AFTER $3 MILLION BRIBE
The head of Ukraine’s Supreme Court has been apprehended by Ukrainian prosecutors over allegations of bribery, following the recent revelation of widespread corruption within the court.
The official’s identity has not been disclosed by prosecutors, who stated that they have yet to receive a formal “notice of suspicion.”
However, local media outlets have reported that Chief Justice Vsevolod Kniaziev was taken into custody in relation to a bribe amounting to nearly $3 million.
In an official statement posted on both its Telegram and Facebook social media accounts, Ukraine’s Anti-Corruption Bureau, in collaboration with the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office, declared that they had exposed extensive corruption within the Supreme Court.
This corruption allegedly involved a scheme where the court’s leadership and judges received bribes. Attached to the announcement, was an image depicting stacks of cash placed on a sofa.
Notice he was apparently bribed with . . . AMERICAN MONEY. Your tax dollars going to Ukraine as “aid” are really going into various pockets over there!
