Zakarpattia's Court of Appeals has ruled to arrest the property seized during a search in the home of leader of the Party of Hungarians of Ukraine (KMKSZ) Vasyl Brenzovych.

The ruling was made due to the fact that the corresponding property is material evidence in criminal proceedings, as reported by the court's press service.
