Censor.NET correspondent reports from the court room.
The law provides that the restrictive measure in the form of a bail cannot be appealed.
The Criminal Proceeding Code allows appealing against only two types of restriction measure: arrest and home arrest.
Subsequently, the appeals court did not accept their statements for consideration.
Today, Aug. 17, the Solomianskyi Court of Kyiv plans to prolong the term of the restriction measure to MPs Rozenblat and Poliakov.
On July 7, the Verkhovna Rada regulation committee considered the motion by Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yurii Lutsenko on providing consent to indictment, detention, and arrest of Petro Poroshenko Bloc (PPB) MP Boryslav Rozenblat, and found it well grounded. On July 11, Rada supported lifting immunity of Rozenblat.
On June 19, NABU detectives detained a bodyguard of Petro Poroshenko Bloc (PPB) MP Boryslav Rozenblat. The bodyguard was carrying a bag with $200,000 in cash. The MP called it a 'provocation.' NABU head Sytnyk announced later that his agency drafted a motion on lifting immunity of people's deputies Boryslav Rozenblat and Maksym Poliakov.
On June 22, Solomianskyi court has ruled to arrest another suspect in the so-called 'amber case,' Kostiantyn Proskurko, for 60 days.
NABU estimates the total amount of bribes accepted for the sake in lobbying the laws for the amber business to be $311,000.
