"Night" hearings on Nasirov case
Judge of Kyiv's Solomyansky District Court Oleksandr Bobrovnyk ruled in the early hours of Tuesday, March 7, that Chairman of Ukraine's State Fiscal Service (SFS) Roman Nasirov, who is charged with abuse of power, should be remanded in custody for 60 days as a measure of restraint.
The court's ruling thus partly satisfied the prosecutors' request, according to an UNIAN correspondent.
Arrested until April 30, 2017, Nasirov can still be released on bail set at UAH 100 million, or about US$3.7 million, while the prosecution requested the sum that is 20 times higher – UAH 2 billion, or US$74 million.
According to the ruling, if the bail is put up, Nasirov shall wear an ankle monitor, turn in his Ukrainian passport and travel documents, as well as refrain from communicating with other individuals involved in the criminal proceedings.
Nasirov shall be kept in custody since the announcement of the ruling until the bail has been put up for him, if any.
