Kyiv's Shevchenkivskyi District Court has extended until November 4 the restrictive measure against Oleksandr Shcheholev, former chief of the SBU security agency’s Kyiv office, suspected in the case of brutal suppression of the Maidan protests, in the form of personal recognizance.

That’s according to the Advocacy Advisory Panel non-profit, Ukrinform reports.

"The Shevchenko court extended until November 4, 2021, the restrictive measure against Oleksandr Shcheholev in the form of personal recognizance," the report reads.

According to activists, after that, the court proceeded to study the footage from CCTV cameras.

Shcheholev is accused of organizing and ordering a violent assault on protesters on the Maidan activists by conducting an anti-terrorist operation, including its violent phase in the House of Trade Unions.

As reported, on October 25, 2019, the Shevchenkivsky District Court of Kyiv released Oleksandr Shcheholev from house arrest and ruled to soften the restrictive measure to personal recognizance.

Shcheholev was detained on August 20, 2015, before the Pechersk District Court of Kyiv the next day ruled that the suspect be taken into custody.

On June 26, 2019, the Shevchenkivsky District Court of Kyiv decided that the custody remand be switched to a 24-hour house arrest.
