Maksym Mykytas, the former owner of Ukrbud company and the ex-MP of the Ukrainian Parliament was released from custody by the decision of Shevchenkivsky District Court of Kyiv. It was reported by his attorney-at-law Yevhen Hrushovets said on Facebook page.
"By the decision of Shevchenkivsky District Court of Kyiv, Maksym Mykytas was released from custody. The unfair measure of restraint has been changed!" the message reads.
As we reported earlier, ex-lawmaker and former head of Ukrbud construction corporation Maksym Mykytas ordered a kidnapping act soon after leaving the remand centre; he was bailed out on December 3, and the kidnapping took place on December 8.
The National Police conducted searches within the kidnapping case and published the video of Mykytas receiving the notification paper, and telephone conversations that pointed at preparations for the crime.
The kidnapped person is a lawyer who assisted Mykytas; the act was organized by a criminal gang leader who is now in custody, charged with murder. The investigation team found out that the kidnapping was ordered by Mykytas himself.
The kidnapped lawyer had his car taken from him by force; the contractor ordered that the lawyer sign the 800,000-dollar bill of debt.
