The U.S. District Court Judge partly satisfied the appeal of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort as to his release from under a house arrest while his case is under investigation, according to Reuters.

In order to be released from house arrest, Manafort is to sign documents allowing to forfeit his property: two in New York, one in Alexandria, Virginia, and his Florida home. If he fails to appear at court proceedings, these will be forfeited.

Manafort will be restricted in his movement as he has a curfew and has to wear an ankle monitor.

Paul Manafort is charged with twelve separate cases, including violations of federal tax law, money laundering and whether he appropriately disclosed his foreign lobbying, conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy of money laundering, false and misleading FARA statements, false statements, and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts. None of the charges, however, mention his part in meddling in the presidential election by Russia.

The Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine investigates two cases involving Paul Manafort. The first one is about the embezzlement of the funds of the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine and second concerns the materials on the black ledger.
