Pechersk district court of Kyiv chose preventive measure for Mykola Makarenko, the ex-head of Kyiv traffic police who was earlier extradited from Russian Federation, in form of detention for two months with $185 thousand bail right. This was reported on Facebook by Nadiya Maksymets, the press secretary of Kyiv prosecutor’s office.
"Ex-head of traffic police Mykola Makarenko was arrested upon the request of Kyiv Prosecutor’s Office with the right to pledge $185 thousand. Such restrictive measure for the former official was chosen by Pechersk district court in the capital," Maksymets informed.
As it was reported earlier, on April 7 Russian law enforcement bodies extradited to Ukraine Mykola Makarenko, the ex-head of Kyiv traffic police who was suspected of corruption. It is noteworthy that he had been detained in Domodedovo airport in Moscow before that.
Makarenko’s corruption schemes were based on illegal mechanisms of receiving money in the registration and examination departments during vehicle registration process.
