Court sets UAH 7 mln bail for Rozenblat in anti-graft trial
The Solomensky district court of Kyiv has chosen a UAH 7 million bail as a preventive measure in the case of Boryslav Rosenblat, MP earlier stripped of parliamentary immunity amid corruption-related investigation.
The court's decision was announced today. The bail is to be paid within a 5-day term.
On July 11, the Verkhovna Rada deprived MPs Boryslav Rozenblat (expelled from BPP) and Maksym Poliakov (People’s Front) of parliamentary immunity, at the same time refusing to give consent to their arrest.
According to the Prosecutor's Office, Rozenblat is suspected of abuse of influence and bribery worth $280,000, while Poliakov has allegedly committed similar crimes, prosecutors believe.
Both deputies are suspected of receiving undue benefits for submitting to the Verkhovna Rada of certain bills and committing other actions related to amber extraction.

Also, the judge satisfied the prosecutors' demand that the deputy be required to hand over his travel passport and other documents allowing him to cross Ukraine’s border, to wear an electronic bracelet, and to allow him to stay only in Kyiv and the city of Zhytomyr.
In addition, prosecutors asked to forbid Rozenblat to get in contact with a number of witnesses and suspects in his case.
