 Ex-Justice Minister Lukash allowed to remove tag while her bail halved

Kyiv's Court of Appeal has slashed the sum of the bail of former Justice Minister Olena Lukash by half from UAH 5.1 mln to 2.5 mln (about $100,000).

This was stated by chairing judge Dmytro Sokurenko, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrainski Novyny.

According to the judge, Lukash's internal passport is to be given back to her while the electronic bracelet has to be removed.

Ex-minister's defense insisted that the measure of restraint in the form of a UAH 5.1 mln bail was unfounded, since the client had neither traveled outside of Kyiv nor hidden from the investigation. Prosecutors claimed the validity of the sum, as Lukash had ignored the interrogations.
