"On March 1, 2018, the investigating judge of the Pechersk district court of Kyiv granted the request filed by the senior investigator of major crimes of the National Police Main Investigations Directorate to impose a pre-trial restriction in the form of detention against suspect Dyminskyi," she said.
According to PGO, Dyminskyi left the country in August 2017 and never came back.
On Aug. 18, a Mercedes-Benz S65 collided with an Opel Astra on the Lviv-Krakovets highway near the village of Yamelnia in the Yavoriv district of the Lviv region. Natalia Tril, the 31-year-old driver of the Opel and a resident of one of the villages of the Yavoriv district, died on spot. The police initially said the Mercedes was driven by a 43-year-old Lviv resident.
Stepan Matsevko, a relative of the deceased who reported the tragedy, claims that Dyminskyi himself was behind the wheel of the Mercedes that was accompanied by a Lexus SUV. After the crash, Dyminskyi got into the Lexus and disappeared from the scene, his bodyguard claiming he was driving the car at the moment of the accident.
On July 12, 2017 Dyminskyi was served charge papers under part 2 of article 286 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. He was subsequently put on the national wanted list under the decision of the senior investigator of major crimes of the National Police Main Investigations Directorate.
The court issued arrest warrant for Dyminskyi on Dec. 13, 2017.
The Kyiv-based appeals court overturned the decision to place Dyminskyi in pre-trial custody on Feb. 22, 2018.
