The work of the Kiev parking inspection has been blocked due to the seizure of servers and documents at the Kyivtransparkservice in the case of abuse of power by the inspection leadership in 2019-2020.
“The [parking lot] inspectorate is beheaded ?? and practically paralyzed. The Inspection’s servers and workstations were seized. The evacuation of vehicles that significantly hinder traffic is not carried out. Drivers park with impunity on the sidewalks and lanes of public transport, ”said Konstantin Usov, deputy head of the Kiev city state administration, in his telegram channel.
As specified in the Kyiv City State Administration, on August 13, employees of the Main Investigation Department of the National Police conducted searches in the premises of the Kyivtransparkservice KP, the Department of Transport Infrastructure of the Kyiv City State Administration and the premises of private companies that provide evacuation services.
According to the Office of the Prosecutor General, law enforcement agencies suspect five employees of the Kyiv City State Administration and two entrepreneurs of wrongdoing. According to the investigation, one of the heads of the Department of Transport Infrastructure of the Kyiv City State Administration, in collusion with the leadership of the Parking Inspectorate and subordinate inspectors, introduced an illegal enrichment scheme by unjustifiably evacuating parked cars to fines with subsequent collection of fines twice as large as the official ones.
“The heads of private services involved in the evacuation of vehicles in Kiev were involved in this scheme. Every day, members of the organized group had to draw up 300 acts, on the basis of which private services evacuated vehicles. To fulfill the “daily plan”, they resorted to a trick – a sign “Roadworks” was installed next to a parked car, – said the Office of the Attorney General.
