Prosecutors' office inactivity Kyiv

Subject of complaint: Makarivskiy Police Department of Kyiv Oblast Main Administration of the National Police (Makarivskiy Police Department), Kyiv-Sviatoshyn Prosecutor’s Office in Kyiv Oblast (Kyiv-Sviatoshyn PO)
Complaint in brief: On May 19, 2017, the Ukrainian subsidiary of a world famous cosmetics company turned to the BOC to challenge a pre-trial investigation  of the criminal proceeding  initiated by Makarivskiy Police Department against the Complainant. Shortly after the Complainant filed a notice of termination of a lease agreement, the lessor turned to the local police and accused the Complainant of deliberately causing damage to the leased premises. The Complainant unsuccessfully addressed the Kyiv-Sviatoshyn PO several times with a request to close the criminal proceeding. 
Action taken: In investigating the complaint, the Complainant’s lawyer provided the BOC investigator with the Act of Return of Leased Premises, where the Lessor testified to the absence of any claims against the Complainant and confirmed the condition of returned premises. 
On June 27, the BOC investigator requested that the Kyiv-Sviatoshyn PO audit the  appropriateness of the pre-trial investigation of the criminal proceeding, given the documentary evidence provided by the Complainant. The BOC investigator also had a meeting with the Head of the Kyiv-Sviatoshyn PO about the matter.
Result achieved: Within a week of the meeting between the BOC investigator and the Kyiv-Sviatoshyn PO, the criminal proceeding  was closed due to the lack of evidence of a crime.
