The High Anti-Corruption Court of Ukraine (HACC) has selected a pre-trial restriction for officials of a regional state administration, who are suspected of obtaining improper advantage, the press service of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAPO) said.

"The High Anti-Corruption Court upon a motion of the SAPO prosecutor and the NABU [National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine] detectives has selected a pre-trial restriction for the head of one of regional state administrations and an official of the regional state administration, who are suspected of obtaining improper advantage," the SAPO said on its Facebook page on Saturday morning.

The court partially satisfied the motion of the prosecutor and detectives and rules to detain the suspects with an alternative of posting a bail of around UAH 10 million for the governor of the region and UAH 5 million for his companion.

"The term of the pre-trial restriction is 60 days," the SAPO said.

As reported, on June 25, the press service of the NABU reported that a head of a regional state administration and an official of the same regional state administration were detained during an attempt to obtain improper advantage under Article 208 of the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine.

On June 26, the NABU and the SAPO notified the head of a regional state administration and the official of the same regional state administration of suspicion of an attempt to obtain improper advantage.
