"It’s true. The court ruled to remove his ankle bracelet. The court analyzed the risks today and came to a conclusion that the chance [for Poliakov’s escape] had significantly diminished. Expert examinations are still to be carried out and papers on Rosenblat (MP Boryslav Rosenblat indicted under the same charges in the "amber case" as Polyakov – Ed.), not Polyakov are still to be provided by Germany," the lawyer said.
According to him, the court concluded that no excessive pre-trial restrictions were needed since "simple investigative actions" left to be carried out.
Boiko says his client has not been paid his bail money back; he is still obliged to come to the investigator, prosecutor, or court on short notice; he is barred from speaking with the witnesses. Poliakov had also his passports impounded and was barred from leaving Ukraine without permission.
