A special eavesdropping device has been found in the office of Deputy Prosecutor-General Anzhela Stryzhevska, the press secretary for the prosecutor-general, Larysa Sarhan, has said on Facebook.
"On Saturday, unauthorised special audio recording equipment was found in the office of the deputy prosecutor-general. The SBU team was called to the scene to document the fact. We attribute this to the fact that it is this deputy, Anzhela Stryzhevska, who is a chief prosecutor overseeing the administrative probe into Artem Sytnyk," Sarhan said.
She added that none of the officials authorised to warrant such an investigative measure signed such permission.
The SBU has launched an investigation into the matter.
On 20 August, a district court in Rivne Region will hear an administrative case of Artem Sytnyk, director of the National Anticorruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU), concerning his alleged failure to declare a vacation at one of the hunting resorts in Rivne Region.
