This was announced by Interior Minister Arsen Avakov during Q&A session in the parliament, Censor.NET reports.
"We have seen the largest-scale operation on detention of State Fiscal Service officials of Yanukovych time, who, headed by Klymenko, were robbing the country. We have seen how they were brought to Kyiv at night, delivered to court, and we have seen with the country how shamefully the judges released these grafters. What are the options within this case in the future?" head of the People's Front faction Maxym Burbak asked.
Interior Minister Avakov's response was as follows:
"I cannot comment of the judges' decisions. At the moment, pretrial restriction measures have been considered for pretty much all the detainees from the fiscal service. The total amount of bail set as of today is about 350 million hryvnia ($13.46 million). Seven people have been arrested," Avakov said, adding that the prosecution will file appeals where insignificant amount of bail had been set by the court.
The minister said Ukraine needs to continue judicial reform in order to prevent wrongful court decisions in future.
As reported, the National Police and the Military Prosecutor's Office launched the special nationwide operation to detain senior officials of the former Inland Revenue Ministry of Ukraine on May 24.
