More than forty articles of Criminal Code of Ukraine are devoted to crimes in business field or so-called crimes of “white collars”. Having this “arsenal” of criminal articles law-enforcement and controlling bodies actively use it as a means of influence on businessmen.
In domestic realias the more successful business the more attention is paid to by both law-enforcement and bad faith management and competitors that sooner or later results in interrogations of officers, searches of premises, forfeiture of property and documents and other measures of provision of criminal proceedings.
After new Criminal Procedure Code becoming effective to initiate criminal proceeding became rather a technical thing than verification of lawfulness of grounds to initiate this proceeding. Pursuant to art. 214 of new Criminal Procedure Code an investigator must immediately initiate investigation after receiving a statement or message about some crime and law-enforcement agents effectively use it to “investigate” crimes in the field of business activity.
