As reported by Censor.NET citing Lutsenko's post in social media, the fugitive official posted £70,000 in bail and was released from custody until March 24 -- the date of hearing the case on his extradition to Ukraine.
"I'd like to reiterate in connection with the spread of false stories: Bondarchuk, who was put on the wanted list by the PGO, was apprehended in London. He went free on £70,000 bail until March 24 with the corresponding 'gentleman's set' of curfew restriction from midnight to 4 a.m. and obligation to report to the police each Friday between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., live and stay overnight only in the place of residence, keep his cell phone switched on and charged 24/7, stay within the court jurisdiction. He has been also prohibited to possess any travel ID," Lutsenko wrote.
"The court will rule whether to initiate extradition process against him on March 24," the prosecutor general said.
As reported, ex-Head of Ukrspetsexport (Ukrainian Special Export) state enterprise Serhii Bondarchuk was arrested in London o n March 15. Bondarchuk later refuted the statement on his detention made by Ukraine's Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko in London. Bondarchuk posted a photo showing him drinking water in a cafe before dinner and holding a hot off the press newspaper.
In February 2015, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine put former head of Ukrspetsexport Serhii Bondarchuk on the wanted list. Later, Interpol declared Bondarchuk internationally wanted.
