Vasyl Krychun, a prosecutor at the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office and the procedural head of these criminal proceedings announced this to Ukrainian News Agency.

"A petition to allow a special (in-absentia) investigation will be filed next week," he said.

According to the prosecutor, the petition can be filed only after information that Chaus has been put on a wanted list is published in the Uriadovyi Kurier newspaper, which is the official publication of the government.

This information should be published in the newspaper this week.

In addition, according to the prosecutor, there is information about the possible whereabouts of Chaus.

According to Krychun, a court order to detain Chaus and deliver to the court is currently in force.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the Interpol issued an international arrest warrant for Chaus in November 2016.

Detectives from the National Anti-Corruption Bureau caught Chaus accepting a bribe of USD 150,000 on August 9.
