PGO submits appeal seeking to change bail for Strana.ua editor-in-chief Huzhva

Kyiv's Prosecutor General's Office (PGO) is challenging the bail Kyiv's Shevchenkivsky district court selected for Strana.ua editor-in-chief Ihor Huzhva in an appeal court.

"Not accepting the court ruling regarding the size of the bail, which is not enough for provision of proper procedural behavior by the suspect, Kyiv's Prosecutor General's Office filed an appeal seeking to increase the bail from UAH 544,000 to UAH 3.2 million," the press service of Kyiv's PGO reported on Thursday.

According to the report, the appeal was sent to the Kyiv's court of appeals.

As reported, Huzhva was arrested in Kyiv on Thursday, June 22, 2017. According to Ukraine's Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko, Huzhva demanded $10,000 in exchange for not publishing compromising material on a politician. According to the PGO, photographic and video evidence backs up charges of impropriety. Dmytro Linko, a Verkhovna Rada deputy from the Radical Party faction, confirmed on Friday morning that Huzhva had demanded money from him.

The same day, the Kyiv city prosecutor's office reported that Huzhva and his mediator had been detained on suspicion of large-scale extortion under Article 189, part 3, of the Criminal court of Ukraine.

On June 24, Kyiv's Shevchenkivsky District Court chose a preventive measure for Huzhva and placed him in custody for two months with an option of a bail in the amount of UAH 544,000.

On June 27, Huzhva's lawyer, ex-Minister of Justice of Ukraine Olena Lukash said that Huzhva had been released on bail.
