 Lavrynovych to appeal conviction while lingering with bail

Former Minister of Justice Oleksandr Lavrynovych does not intend to post a bail of $1.2 million hryvnias unless a notice of appeal is considered in court.

As reported by Censor.NET, he announced this in an interview to Ukrainski Novyny.

"The bail is not posted, because, first of all, there is still time left, and secondly, I am preparing an appeal," he said, noting that unless complaint is considered in the Court of Appeal he won't post any bail.
