A typo of a judge in a written decision regarding the arrest of Deputy Minister for Temporarily Occupied Territories Yuriy Grymchak cannot be the basis for his release from jail. This was stated by the prosecutor Denys Ivanov, Hromadske reported.

The prosecutor recalled that in the event of a technical error, the court can correct the error on its own initiative or by appeal, as happened in this case.

“These two decrees (the first of August 16, with typos, and the amended resolution of August 17, - ed.) are integral parts, and the decision to correct a typo, in accordance with the requirements of the criminal procedure law, cannot change in any way the decision of August 16, since we are talking about a technical error, not about changing the order of execution of decisions," the prosecutor said.

Ivanov emphasized that the decision indicated his immediate execution, therefore, the prosecutor’s office did not see any reason to release Grymchak from custody.

And the prosecutor explained such attention to the mistake of the judge by the attempt of the Grymchak's lawyer to manipulate.

On August 14, 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.

Besides, it was reported that Yuriy Grymchak is under questioning in the Prosecutor General Office. Later Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU) published a video of detention of Deputy Minister of Temporarily Occupied Territories and IDPs Yuriy Grymchak.

On August 15, Grymchak was officially charged with getting a hand on someone else's large sum of money
