Pechersk district court of Kyiv has not chosen the restrictive measure for former president Petro Poroshenko; the court hearing was postponed on July 1 as NV reported.
The Prosecutor General does not insist on the detention in custody and asks the court to choose the restrictive measure until July 10.
“The Prosecutor’s Office does not ask the detention in custody but personal recognizance until July 10. To report about location and change of location,” Iryna Gerashchenko reported.
Earlier, the Prosecutor General's Office filed a motion to the court to take the former President of Ukraine and incumbent MP Petro Poroshenko under arrest with the possibility of bail of 374,000 dollars.
As it was reported earlier, the investigation suspects that Petro Poroshenko, being a president, in 2018 by giving an allegedly criminal order, persuaded a military official, the Head of the Foreign Intelligence Service of Ukraine, to exceed his power and official authority. Poroshenko denies his guilt.
It should be noted that the investigation, in this case, was launched by the State Bureau of Investigation on December 5, 2019.
