Court allowed to detain Huzhva to change the restriction measure from bail to arrest – General Prosecutor’s Office

Shevchenkivskyi district court of Kyiv city permitted detention of chief editor of media outlet “Strana.ua” Ihor Huzhva, so that the court could change the restriction measure for him – from  bail to arrest. This was reported by Radio Liberty, with reference to the PR representative of Ukraine, Andriy Lysenko.

“Шевченківський районний суд міста Києва 5 лютого задовольнив клопотання прокурора про звернення застави, внесеної Ігорем Гужвою, в якості запобіжного заходу в сумі 1 мільйон 35 тисяч гривень до державного бюджету. Також надано дозвіл на його затримання з метою приводу до суду для вирішення питання про зміну запобіжного заходу із застави на тримання під варту”, – повідомив Лисенко.

According to him, the next court session is scheduled for February 12.

As IMI reported before, Ihor Huzhva left the territory of Ukraine and requested political asylum in Austria. He considers staying in Ukraine a threat to his life and health, as he reported receiving threats, and also reminded that five criminal cases were initiated against him.

The Prosecutor’s Office stated that it prepares to put Huzhva on international red list to arrest him and return him to Ukraine.
