Court releases Infrastructure Minister Omelyan against guarantees of Sports Minister Zhdanov
Kyiv's Solomiansky District Court has released Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan, who is suspected of illegal enrichment, against guarantees of Youth and Sports Minister Ihor Zhdanov.
The court made this decision at a session on Friday.
According to earlier reports, Kyiv's Solomiansky District Court was to decide on pre-trial restrictions for Omelyan on Friday.
Detectives of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU), under the procedural control of prosecutors of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAPO), earlier notified Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan of the suspicion of illegal enrichment and failure to declare income.
Omelyan, for his part, linked the suspicion of illegal enrichment to the reforms he is conducting, the upcoming elections in the country and the case against ex-deputy Mykola Martynenko, on which the NABU has been working for several years.
