MP from the «people’s Will» Sergei Melnychuk, who «jokingly» pointed out in an Declaration for 2015, an income of $ 1 trillion hryvnia, may be subject to criminal prosecution. This was stated by the head of the State fiscal service (SFS) Roman Nasirov in an interview with «Obozrevatel».
«You have to understand that it is not April 1 and not at all comic history. If the MP wanted to show the imperfection of the system of electronic Declaration, then perhaps there are other ways to do this than to show in their income of 1 trillion hryvnias cash», — he said.
The official said that if the MP had not fixed the Declaration is true, then the service will check the listed information.
«MP is no different from another citizen of Ukraine: a physical person. So the procedure is the same for all: first, draw the check, then send a letter asking to explain the income will continue to be drawn up. Subsequently, we follow the rules,» — said Nasirov.
According to lawyers, declarants may be responsible either for unlawful enrichment, or for evasion from payment of taxes. The first act provides imprisonment for the term up to 10 years with deprivation of the right to occupy certain positions or engage in certain activities for a term up to three years with confiscation of property. The second is threatened with the penalty from 1 thousand to 25 thousand non-taxable minimum (from 17 thousand to 425 thousand UAH) or deprivation of the right to occupy certain positions for up to three years with confiscation of property.
Recall, November 1, Sergey Melnichuk said that indicated a trillion hryvnias in its Declaration for the sake of attracting attention. Melnychuk promised to correct the Declaration and provide it 10 million income.
