The court considered on Wednesday an appeal by Kurchenko's lawyers against the decision of the Pechersk district court of Kyiv of May 10 to remand the fugitive businessman in custody as a pre-trial restraint measure.
The Pechersk district court explained that after Kurchenko is detained, but not later than 48 hours from the moment of his delivery to the place of prosecution, the court will have to decide on the use of remand.
Following the consideration, the panel of judges granted the appeal and canceled the ruling of the first instance court.
Moreover, the appeals court dismissed a request by the Prosecutor General's Office to remand Kurchenko in custody.
Earlier, President Petro Poroshenko said he expected law enforcers to accelerate investigations launched under criminal proceedings against Kurchenko.
