Police inspection in Poltava


JKX Oil & Gas plc ('JKX') reports that yesterday the National Police of Ukraine carried out unexpected searches at the offices of its subsidiary Poltava Petroleum Company ('PPC'). The searches are part of an ongoing investigation announced by the Company on 15 June 2016.


PPC is fully cooperating with the investigation, but nevertheless believes that it is in full legal compliance with matters outlined in the warrant and that the action is completely without merit.


Tom Reed, CEO of JKX commented "We will be bringing this matter up with the relevant authorities in Kiev. I believe these actions to be a distraction for JKX and damaging to Ukraine's investment climate."
