SBU documents financial transaction of ASMAP management for over UAH 300 million
SBU documented the financial transaction of the management of the Association of International Automobile Carriers with the funds of market participants.
The operatives of the special service established that during 2017-2020 the Association received more than UAH 300 million of payments and contributions from companies engaged in international passenger and freight transportation. According to the investigation, the management of the public structure carried out compulsory insurance of carriers through an affiliated with the director company at inflated rates. Most of the money was moved out in the shadow by officials through non-commodity transactions with sham companies.
According to the experts, due to the actions of the management, the prices for the services of the Association for Ukrainian carriers were artificially inflated, and the state budget did not receive tens of millions of hryvnias.
To obtain evidence of the illegal scheme, law enforcement officers conducted searches in Kyiv city and Kyiv region at the Association's office, affiliated insurance and sham companies. During the proceedings the law enforcement officers seized financial and accounting documents confirming the fictitious financial transactions, seals of domestic and foreign companies, with use of which the assets were converted into cash. The clean forms of financial and economic documents of sham commercial structures, and a large amount of unaccounted cash were also found.
Pre-trial investigation on bringing to criminal responsibility all organizers and participants of the transaction is under way.
The operation was conducted by the SBU Main Directorate of Counterntelligence Protection of State Economic Interests with the investigators of the SFS Large Taxpayers Office under the procedural supervision of the Prosecutor General’s Office.
