Gizo Uglava: Power to arrest the accused will allow the NABU to fight corruption more effectively

Imperfection of Ukraine's legislation  prohibits to impose mandatory detention as pre-trial restriction for those accused of corruption. Therefore there is a risk that the accused will attempt to leave the country after the bail is posted. This was announced by Gizo Uglava, First Deputy Director of the National Anti-corruption Bureau of Ukraine.
According to him, when it comes to investigating corruption-related crimes, bail is not always sufficient as a pre-trial restriction.
