Criminal proceedings upon tax evasion has been closed


Our attorneys have smoothly completed a case regarding protection of interests of private entrepreneurs engaged in the business of transportation and recyclable materials trade within confrontation with the tax police authorities and the prosecution service, and forced the officials of the said bodies to close criminal proceedings initiated in respect of our clients upon tax evasion in especially big amount.

The situation arose from intentional registration by the officials of the Tax Police Investigation Division of the State Tax Inspection of Bila Tserkva of criminal proceedings upon, in their opinion, aiding by the clients in tax evasion in big amount basing on designedly inveracious facts. Following that the mentioned officials began, under the guise of investigatory actions within such criminal proceedings, production before the courts providing designedly inveracious information concerning, in their opinion, aiding by the clients in tax evasion in big amount, for the purposes of getting of the court orders of sanction for search and seizure of the accounting documents, office equipment and other “proof” of business relations of the clients with their counteragents. Such actions could be actually purposed to bring pressure on taxpayers and to cease their business activity under the guise of investigatory actions.

Consequently, as a result of unlawful actions by certain officials of the tax police authorities and the prosecution service, our attorneys had been urged to proceed with performing of defence of violated rights of the clients by means of regular submission of petitions on closing of criminal; proceedings, of attorney’s requests in respect of investigation details; judicial appeals against all illegal decisions and conclusions of tax audits; provision of legal support during all investigating actions conducted by the pre-trial investigation authorities with the participation of our clients; initiating of recriminatory criminal proceedings in respect of the fiscal authorities officials involved in unlawful actions against our clients; initiating of cross-actions of the fiscal authorities, as well as addressing to the prosecution service, the law enforcement authorities and the fiscal authorities of all levels, investigating judges, Business Ombudsman Council with the aim of showing and publication of all facts of unlawful actions of the fiscal authorities officials, the tax police and the prosecution service.

Tremendous job purposed to rectification of an injustice and recovery of business reputation of our clients had been performed by us during a period of more than one year of legal confrontation. In particular, several court cases in the Administrative Courts within the disputes with the fiscal authorities had been won; two court cases within criminal procedural proceedings as to initiating of criminal proceedings in respect of the fiscal authorities officials involved in unlawful actions against our clients had been won; dozens of petitions, requests, open letters, claims and applications with demands to close the said criminal proceedings had been submitted.
