First Real Steps: Cabinet of Ministers Begins Liquidation of the Tax Police

The Cabinet of Ministers has dismissed Andriy Holovach, head of the tax police, due to liquidation of this agency: Order of the Cabinet of Ministers #285 of April 1. It is anticipated that a Financial Investigations Service (so called financial police) will be created in its place. In addition to the tax police, the new agency will absorb economic crime units of the Ministry of Interior and the State Security Service. Holovach has chaired the tax police from 2010.

Plans to establish a financial police were first discussed about a year ago, under the Yanukovych presidency; however, the idea was rejected at that time.
