Court trial on "the case of Shevchuk" to be hold in Transnistria
Chairman of the Investigation Committee of the Transnistrian region Vyacheslav Brynzari said that in the nearest time case materials of six criminal cases brought against the former leader of the region Evgeny Shevchuk would be transferred to the court.
Evgeny Shevchuk is accused of corruption, smuggling, abuse of power, misappropriation of state money in especially large amounts, as well as unreasonable delay in the payment of pensions and salaries.
In total, Evgeny Shevchuk faces up to 12 years in prison.
It is noteworthy that the court can make decision in the absence of the accused, who left the territory of the region.
In turn, Shevchuk calls what is happening in Transnistria "revenge of the current authorities".
