Shevchenko himself announced this on Facebook.
According to the ex-head of the NBU, the case against him is “falling apart before our eyes.”
“The Bureau was in such a hurry to declare suspicion on me and put me on the wanted list before the deadline, obviously set by someone, that they only now remembered that a mandatory prerequisite is added to the charges – an evidence base. And NABU is extremely bad with her.
On Friday, my defenders received information that NABU detectives filed a petition to extend the pre-trial investigation. This is the second time in the last three weeks.
This time, NABU asks to extend the pre-trial investigation to 12 months – “due to the need to conduct two dozen investigative and search actions,” Shevchenko wrote.
He believes that these facts indicate that the decision about the announcement of suspicion “is biased, was taken in a hurry and under the influence of political factors.”
“The NABU case is politically motivated, artificially created in haste and does not contain any evidence. And fall apart in any impartial court.
That is why NABU will ask VAKS to extend the investigation period. I invite journalists to this meeting, which will take place on December 21, 2022,” added the ex-head of the NBU.
