Special Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAP) appealed against the decision of investigating judge of Solomianka district court to release Martynenko on parole. This was reported by SAP press service.
Nazar Kholodnytsky, the head of prosecutor’s office, explained that the chosen preventive measure does not correspond to neither severity of the crime, nor the risks stated in the request, which, according to him, are much broader than it was announced during the hearing.
Prosecution demands to reverse the decision of the first instance and adopt new decision asking to choose restrictive measure in the form of imprisonment for 60 days with the alternative $11 million bail. It is noteworthy that SAP contested the short text of judicial decision, as the full text will be available on the last day.
