Ukraine's former Deputy Minister for Occupied Territories Yuriy Grymchak is brought from the Chernihivske detention center to Kyiv's Lukyanivske detention center. The official's wife Yulia reported that on Facebook.
"Today morning (January 23, - 112 International), Yura was taken from Chernihivske to Lukyanivske detention center in Kyiv. So far, we have no idea where he was, who else was in his cell, what kind of conditions are there", she wrote.
The woman added she expected an update from detectives who insisted that Grymchak should be transferred.
"No violations were committed by the arrested. They promised the lawyers to reveal Grymchak's whereabouts but they know nothing, for now", Yulia Grymchak wrote.
Earlier, the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court of Ukraine decided to keep Grymchak until February 14.
In August 2019, the detectives of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU), together with representatives of the Special Investigation Department of the General Prosecutor's Office and the Security Service of Ukraine, detained Yuriy Grymchak, the Deputy Minister of Temporarily Occupied Territories and IDPs, and his assistant on a $ 480,000 bribe.
