"On Oct. 18, 2011, Shevchenkivsky District Court issued a ruling to choose the measure of restraint for Melnychenko in the form of detention," Prosecutor General’s Office spokesperson Yuriy Boichenko told Interfax-Ukraine.

He said that the court ruling says that if Melnychenko is detained, he should be brought to court in less than two days in order to choose the measure of restraint in the form of detention.

When asked why the court issued such a ruling, Boichenko said: "This is due to the fact that Melnychenko is on the international wanted list, evading investigation and preventing the establishment of truth in the case."
