The High Anti-Corruption Court has imposed a pre-trial restraint in the form of detention on a close relative of the former first deputy secretary of the National Security and Defence Council, a suspect in the case of inflicting almost UAH 13 million in damage on Ukrspetsexport, the Specialised Anticorruption Prosecutor's Office has said.
"The HACC investigating judge upheld the position of the SAPO prosecutor and imposed a preventive measure on one of the suspects in the case of inflicting almost UAH 13 million in damage on Ukrspetsexport (part of the Ukroboronprom state concern), namely a person whose close relative held a position in the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine," the SAPO said.
The SAPO does not name the defendant, but it is Ihor Hladkovskyy.
According to the prosecutor's office, the court granted the motion of the NABU detectives, agreed with the SAPO prosecutor, and imposed a custodial measure of restraint on him.
