The Prosecutor General's Office has appealed against the decision of the Pechersk District Court of Kyiv on the house arrest of the Chairman of the Political Council of Opposition Platform - For Life party, parliamentarian Viktor Medvedchuk. The press service of the Prosecutor General's Office stated, as Interfax-Ukraine reports.
"The Prosecutor General's Office has appealed against the decision of the Pechersk District Court to apply a restrictive measure in the form of round-the-clock house arrest to the suspected Member of the Parliament. Prosecutors insist on the preventive measure in the form of detention with a bail of UAH 300 million 930 (almost $11 mln),” the statement says.
At the same time, the Prosecutor General's Office noted that Viktor Medvedchuk had deposited his diplomatic and foreign passports.
"The suspected MP has deposited his foreign and diplomatic passports with the pre-trial investigation body," Ukrainian News reports citing the Prosecutor General's Office.
As it was reported earlier, the Pechersk district court of Kyiv chose the restriction measure for Viktor Medvedchuk, the opposition MP and Chairman of the Political Council of Opposition Platform - For Life party. The lawmaker will remain under house arrest until July 9, 2021. Prosecutor asked the court to arrest Medvedchuk until July 10 or define the bail in the amount of 10 million US dollars.
Earlier, the politician left the Prosecutor General's Office, having looked through the charges against him. "I read (the suspicion) and took a copy. The accusations are unfounded, unsubstantiated and, in general, they can be called political", Medvedchuk told Interfax news agency while leaving the building.
