The investigation in the case of the Central Election Committee (CEC) chief Mykhailo Okhendovskyi will last until April 14.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Ukrinform, this was announced by head of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAP) Nazar Kholodnytskyi on air of ZIK TV station.

"The investigation in Okhendovskyi case continues. The deadline has been postponed until April 14. Tomorrow (March 22 - ed.) we have a meeting with the detectives on that case," he said.

"I stress that when the indictment was served, there were enough grounds to believe that this person might be involved in committing a crime. I assumed the responsibility for Okhendovskyi and signed the indictment without the detectives. If they do what they're told to and prove his guilt, we will draft an act," the official said.
