Criminal investigation initiated over alleged damage from Tax Code Protesters’ tent camp
The Kyiv Police Public Relations Centre has informed that the police have initiated a criminal investigation over damage to a granite slab when the tent camp was erected on Maidan [Maidan Nezalezhnosti – Independence Square] by those protesting against the new Tax Code. The investigation is apparently under Article 194 (deliberate damage to property) of the Criminal Code. Employees of a municipal enterprise have given a preliminary estimate of 200 thousand UAH for the damage.
This report confirms a number of reports in the media that one of the organizers of the protest against the Tax Code, Oleksandr Danylyuk, has been summoned for questioning to the police.
