Ukraine's specialized anti-corruption prosecutor's office (SAP) on 24 January sent to court an indictment against the former chairman of Krasnoluchsky city court in Luhansk Region. The former judge is indicted in declaring false information about incomes and assets and illegal enrichment.

The press service of the National Anticorruption Bureau (NABU) said it was the first ever case on electronic declaration brought to court.

The investigation established that the judge did not indicate property worth 17 mn hryvnya in his income declaration for 2015-2016. The assets have been registered on his common law wife (they were formally divorced in 2011, but continued to live together).

Among the undeclared objects are several apartments in Kharkiv and Luhansk regions, a house in Luhansk Region, eight land plots in the resort area of Crimea, non-residential properties, and cars: Nissan Pathfinder, BMW X5 and BMW X6.

The suspect also did not declare large sums that have been spent on the repair and improvement of real estate.

The report does not specify the suspect's name, but it is known that Krasnoluchskyy court since 2003 has been chaired by Yevhen Samoylenko.

On October 31, 2016, Samoilenko filed a declaration in the single register in connection with his resignation. In December 2016, Ukrainian media learned from the single court record materials that an investigation has been opened against Samoylenko.
