Solomianskyi District Court of Kyiv has allowed National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) detectives to check the calls of the Minister of Internal Affairs Arsen Avakov in a case of questionable procurement of backpacks by the Ministry from a company that is said to be connected with his son Oleksandr.
The court made a corresponding decision on August 15, 2016. It allows NABU to study calls between June 2014 and August 2014.
Former Deputy Minister Serhiy Chebotar and the Minister"s son Oleksandr are mentioned in a criminal case regarding purchasing 6,000 backpacks for the needs of the Ministry for an overstated price.
NABU was already granted access to the bank accounts of Dniprovend, a company that supplied tactical backpacks to the Ministry, which is said to be connected with Avakov"s son.
In February, a video from a hidden camera was released, which shows the son of the Minister of Internal Affairs Oleksandr Avakov allegedly discussing the supply of the tactical backpacks to the Ministry with the former Deputy Minister Serhiy Chebotar.
