The Head of the Anticorruption Prosecutor's Office of Moldova Viorel Moral says judge of the Dniprovskyi District Court of Kyiv Mykola Chaus, who is suspected of bribery in Ukraine, has surrendered to Moldova's law enforcement agencies himself in Chisinau.

Moral told this to Ukrainian News Agency.

"He came himself to police yesterday (February 28) and confessed he had committed an offense of illegal crossing of the border," Moral said.

At present, judge Chaus is arrested for three days and prosecutors will apply to a court to select a measure of preventive punishment.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Moldovan law enforcers have arrested judge Mykola Chaus in Moldova.

Interpol issued an international arrest warrant for Chaus in November 2016.

Detectives from the National Anti-Corruption Bureau caught Chaus receiving a bribe of USD 150,000 on August 9, 2016.
