Mayboroda was detained on May 14, as the National Anti-Corruption Bureau looked into the embezzlement case; Mayboroda was among the suspects, along with Yuriy Allerov, who was recently fired from the office of Commander of the National Guard of Ukraine.
The court found that there was a power abuse case in Mayboroda's detention procedure and ruled to release him.
The official's lawyers said they would soon file the appeal, stating that the NABU committed several service crimes; he was held in detention for two days, the detectives did not show him any documents from the court, confirming that it chose a pre-trial restriction measure, and the very procedure of detention was illegal. Besides, the lawyers said, the NABU detectives tried to interfere with the court's working procedure, asking to recall the judge without any certain reason for that.
As for Allerov, suspected in embezzling state funds during the procurement of new houses for the Ukrainian military, the investigation will be asking the court to detain him and set the bailout of UAH 10,000,000 (roughly, USD 370,000).
