After that, law enforcement agencies opened a criminal case of embezzlement under his past leadership, the TV channel 360 reports.
The amount of damage is not named until the end of the investigation by the authorities.
Ganus also told TASS journalists that the initial investigation was carried out by some independent organization. He explained its attraction by the need to “ensure the purity of our rear”, implying the activities of the past leadership.
