On November 23, the Shevchenkov District Court in Kyiv extended the preparatory proceedings in the case of Ihor Kolomoisky until March 2, 2024, setting an alternative bail of UAH 3 billion 891 million
Prosecutors asked for the continuation of the pre-trial investigation into Kolomoisky's misappropriation of PrivatBank funds. They justified why it was necessary. More time is needed to interrogate suspects in criminal proceedings, conduct investigative experiments, forensic economic research, interrogate witnesses, interrogate PrivatBank officials, etc.
Instead, the defense side, in particular lawyers Oleg Pushkar and Oleksandr Lysak, asked not to consider the prosecutor's request to continue the pre-trial investigation.
There are documents, there are financial transactions, so the amount of evidence, in this case, comes down not to witness statements, but to settlement transactions
The court ultimately agreed to the prosecutors' request to continue the pre-trial investigation.
On October 27, the court extended Kolomoisky's detention until January 2, setting an alternative bail of UAH 3 billion 891 million.
