The Pecherskyi District Court of Kyiv has granted the Prosecutor-General's Office access to accounts of former parliamentary deputy Oleksii Azarov, who is the son of former prime minister Mykola Azarov, in six banks as part of the investigation of a criminal case in which he is suspected of receiving a bribe of EUR 7.7 million.


The court issued the relevant ruling on January 12, Ukrainian News reports.

According to the court's ruling, the special investigation department of the Prosecutor-General's Office is investigating a criminal case in which Oleksii Azarov is suspected of receiving a large bribe.

The investigation has established that during the period from 12 December 2012 to 27 November 2014, when he was a parliamentary deputy, he was the head of the antiparliamentary group on relations with Austria, the deputy head of the parliamentary group on antiparliamentary relations with Spain, and a member of several other parliamentary groups on antiparliamentary relations.

"He received EUR 7,700,000, CHF 600,000, and USD 500,000 from sources yet to be identified by investigators during the period from 12 December 2012 to 27 November 2014, when he was a public official," the court ruling states.

Oleksii Azarov placed these funds in bank accounts in Switzerland, Italy, and Liechtenstein.

The Prosecutor-General's Office declared him a wanted person on 23 January 2015.

As part of the investigation, the court granted law enforcement agencies access to the suspect's bank accounts with Khreschatyk bank, Alfa Bank, Rodovyd Bank, Pravex Bank, Imexbank, and Active Bank.

As Ukrainian News earlier reported, police found precious items in an apartment belonging to former prime minister Azarov in Kyiv in December.
