On Thursday, Oct. 26, investigators of the Main Military Prosecutor's Office of the PGO are raiding homes of persons related to Kapital Bank, as well as office premises used by Kapital Bank's ultimate owner in Gulliver Business Center.

The ultimate owner of Kapital Bank, some E., the prosecution said, is a Ukrainian citizen with an Israeli passport. At some point he ordered to destroy all banking information from computers in order to avoid criminal responsibility for committed violations. However, investigators together with Economy Protection Department of the National Police of Ukraine were able to find a major part of the allegedly destroyed servers of Kapital Bank and recover evidence of illegal activities, the prosecutor's office said.
One of the former heads of Kyiv office of Kapital is a father of a Ukrainian MP. The raids are not related to this MP's political activities, the prosecutor's office said, and are aimed at finding documents of Kapital Bank and other important evidence in the case.
As reported, two dozen top tax officials of the former Inland Revenue Ministry of Ukraine were detained in the National Police and the Military Prosecutor's Office's special nationwide operation on May 24.
