Court arrests Yefremov, setting bail at 3.7 million hryvnia. PHOTOS

Peschersk District Court in Kyiv chose to arrest former deputy of the Verkhovna Rada, former leader of the Party of Regions faction Oleksandr Yefremov until Apr. 14, with the possibility of paying bail in the amount of 3.7 million hryvnia (about $150,000 at the current rate – ed.).

Corresponding decision was announced by judge Olesia Batrin, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrainian News.

The judge noted that she elected such measure of restraint for Yefremov due to the fact that he may try to leave Ukraine and hide from the investigation. In addition, the judge increased the amount of bail proposed by the prosecutor's office from 2,464 to 3,000 minimum wages, that is up to 3,654,000 hryvnia.
