Sergey Aksenov, actual Head of the Russia-occupied Crimea, is called in for questioning by the Prosecutor General's Office of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea along with the Ukrainian Prosecutor General's Office, reported acting prosecutor of Crimea Nazar Holodnitsky.
"We've sent him (Sergey Aksenov) a summons letter via means of electronic communication," said Holodnitsky.
Aksenov is to arrive in Kiev at the Prosecutor General's Office of Crimea to be reported as being suspected of a criminal offense. The head of Crimea has been suspected of misappropriation of Council of Ministers of Crimea building, as well as the transfer of the ownership of state-owned Ukrainian ‘Artek’ International Children's Center’ to Russia.
If absent, Prosecutor General's Office of Crimea will apply to the court for permission to detain Aksenov and take him to the court. "The section, we incriminate him, is a high crime, punishable up to 12 years", said acting Prosecutor of Crimea.
It was also stated that per curium Aksenov can be declared internationally wanted since Interpol doesn’t put on the international wanted list persons accused of political crimes, in particular, high treason.
Aksenov has already commented on the summons letter on his FB page:
- Today I got to know I am to show up before the so-called Prosecutor General's Office of Crimea, located at Kiev, Moskovskaya Str., 8. It’s impressive they want me to come to Moskovskaya Street in Kiev ... after all they won’t call me in for questioning in Bandera Street!
Earlier on, Pechersk District Court has seized movable and immovable property of the Crimean MP.
- Pechersk District Court in Kiev has supported the request issued by investigators of the Office for representing the interests of the citizen or the State in court, fighting crime and corruption in the temporarily occupied territory of the Crimean peninsula as part of the General Prosecutor's Office, seized movable and immovable property of the MP of the Supreme Council of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, as well as called in for questioning the self-proclaimed heads of the illegally formed government ( S.V. Aksyonov, V.A. Konstantinova, etc.), according to the press service of the Prosecutor General's Office.
