Judge from Odesa region detained for court decisions' falsification to deprive Donetsk citizens of property rights – Matios
The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) and the military prosecutor's office detained the judge of the Bilhorod-Dnistrovsky court (Odesa region), who forged judicial decisions, on the basis of which citizens were deprived of property rights in Donetsk, chief military prosecutor of Ukraine Anatoliy Matios has said.
"Yesterday, the SBU together with the military prosecutor's office detained the judge of the Bilhorod-Dnistrovsky court, a native of the city of Donetsk, who is suspected of making falsified court decisions during 2015-2016, using stamps and seals stolen in the Kirovsky district court of Donetsk in 2014, according to which the registrars of the so-called DPR and LPR made changes in citizens' registration documents for real estate and housing in Donetsk," he told a briefing in Kyiv on Wednesday.
"As a result, they were reissued to representatives of terrorist organizations," the military prosecutor said.
According to Matios, three victims were found who discovered in open registries that they no longer own housing in Donetsk.
He also noted that the investigation established seven more such cases.
