The office of the prosecutor of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea urges all state bodies to provide all personal data on their employees who worked in Crimea before the annexation of the peninsular by Russia. This is said in a letter of the office of the prosecutor of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea to the Secretariat of the Cabinet of Ministers dated November 24, 2016, the copy of which was made available to Ukrainian News Agency. The letter reads that the office of the prosecutor of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea is investigating into a criminal case instituted on 31 May 2016 on the fact of high treason against officials who held posts in the Ukrainian state bodies before the annexation. The investigation has established that a number of former Ukrainian officials have been appointed to posts in Crimea by the illegitimate Russian authorities. In this connection prosecutors urge Ukrainian ministries and other bodies of the executives, the Kyiv city state administration, regional state administrations to provide information about former employees of the Crimean branches and employees who have been transferred from Crimea after the annexation. Prosecutors demand all data about such employees and their relatives, photos and videos. The letter is signed by prosecutor M. Elozhenko. As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the Kyiv Pecherskyi District Court in November 2016 authorized special pre-trial investigation against former 25 judges of Crimea suspected of high treason.
