"The court granted the petition of the prosecutor's office of the Kherson region investigator and imposed pre-trial restraint in the form of house arrest on the suspect - the former Kherson Regional Council chairman and obliged him to wear an electronic bracelet. At the same time Odesa appeals court with participation of the representative of the prosecutor's office of the Kherson region vetted and approved the application of the Kherson Regional Council for review of the newly discovered evidence concerning the court's decision, which invalidated the ruling of the Kherson Regional Council on its chairman resignation. The mentioned ruling of the regional council was canceled by the court's decision," the statement reads.
Earlier, prosecutor's office served suspicion of abuse of office to the Kherson Regional Council chairman on March 23.
Kherson Regional Council was headed by Viktor Pelykh in 2010-2014. Early last year, he was removed from his post, but he was later reinstated by the Odesa appeals court decision.
