The raid of the plane by which MP Rozenblat indented to leave Ukraine for Germany was conducted under part 3 article 233 of the Criminal Procedural Code of Ukraine (prior to a judge's decision) with the purpose to save property that might bear signs of material evidence. The MP was not detained, NABU stressed.

The investigation was informed that the suspect was planning to take out of Ukraine some communication means that might contain information about hiding previous crimes and communication between its participants, as well as material valuables and money received as improper advantage, as well as other property to prevent it from being arrested within the investigation. In addition, the detectives had information that the suspect might have had fake documents with him to leave the country.

During the search conducted on the plane the NABU detectives sized cell phones, a tablet, items looking like jewelry, payment cards by foreign banks, a foreign passport of Ukrainian citizen and a diplomatic passport.

Earlier, it was reported that MP Borys Rozenblat was not allowed on his flight in 'Kyiv' international airport when he tried to leave for Germany on Oct. 19. NABU said it was not a detention, but investigative procedure.

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 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.

On Oct. 13, Solomianskyi district court of Kyiv failed to consider a motion by the Special Anti-corruption prosecutor's office on extending obligations imposed on Rozenblat.

On Oct. 17, his obligation to wear an electronic tracking device expired.
