 Korban placed under house arrest for two months

The Pechersk district court in Kyiv imposed the pretrial restriction against Hennadii Korban in the form of house arrest.

This decision was made by judge Larysa Tsokol, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrainska Pravda.

Hennadii Korban has been placed under the house arrest for two months until Dec. 31, 2015.

The court has held that Korban must hand over his ID, including the travel passport, and wear an electronic bracelet.

Meanwhile, Korban's lawyer Oksana Tomchuk said the defense will appeal the decision. She also noted that the leader of Ukrop party will remain under house arrest in his house in Dnipropetrovsk 24/7.

The prosecution reportedly requested to remand Korban into custody without the right to bail. The prosecutor has explained the request with an assumption that Korban may hide from the investigation, put pressure on witnesses, and commit criminal offenses.

Korban's defense appealed to postpone the hearing due to lateness of the hour, but the prosecutors have accused lawyers of dragging out the trial, as the 72-hour term to impose a pretrial restriction would have ended at 8:40 a.m. on Nov. 6.

Associate of Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoiskyi and Kyiv mayoral candidate Hennadii Korban was detained in a special operation Oct. 31. Law enforcement officers have served him a notice of suspicion of involvement in running an organized criminal group.
