The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) has already interrogated the detained ex-judge Mykola Chaus. The law enforcers assured that the judge had not been abducted; he himself called the intelligence officers, as the SBU press service reported.
The Security Service said that yesterday a person contacted the SBU hotline, who said that a man had arrived at one of the village councils of the Vinnytsia region, who introduced himself as Mykola Chaus and asked to call the SBU officers.
Subsequently, the investigators of the Security Council received data from Mykola Chaus, testifying to his abduction, imprisonment, and the use of other illegal actions against him.
"In connection with the relevant statement against Mr. Chaus, measures have been taken to ensure his safety. Due to his physical and mental condition after a long imprisonment, he is now being provided with the necessary medical assistance," the security service said.
On April 3, it was reported that Ukrainian ex-judge Mykola Chaus was kidnapped in Chisinau, Moldova. The relevant information was confirmed by the Chisinau police, and also the lawyer of Chaus Iulian Balan was informed about it. According to the lawyer, a group of unidentified armed men kidnapped a Ukrainian judge in the center of Chisinau.
Later, it was reported that the Ukrainian intelligence and law enforcement bodies might be involved in the kidnapping of Mykola Chaus.
In August 2016, Chaus was caught on bribery - he demanded and received the money in the amount of $ 150 thousand.
