Court puts MP Tyshchenko under house arrest

Kyiv's Pecherskyi District Court has granted the request of the prosecutor's office to choose a measure of restraint in the form of round-the-clock house arrest for Ukrainian MP Mykola Tyshchenko.

Investigating judge Oleksii Sokolov read out the ruling at a court session on Tuesday, Ukrinform reports.

The court obliged the lawmaker to hand in his passport for traveling abroad and not to leave his place of residence without the permission of the investigator.

Earlier, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Andriy Kostin approved a suspicion notice for MP Mykola Tyshchenko due to the illegal deprivation of liberty of a former serviceman of the Ukrainian military intelligence agency's Kraken special operations unit in Dnipro.

According to the State Bureau of Investigation, on June 20 in Dnipro, a group of individuals, on the instructions of the lawmaker, illegally deprived the former military serviceman of his liberty. He was detained for a certain time and bodily harm was inflicted on him. The investigation established that this had been done upon prior conspiracy by a group of individuals and with the use of physical force.

Earlier, the police opened two criminal cases over the attack by unidentified individuals in camouflaged clothes and balaclavas on a man in Dnipro on June 20.
