Six protesters freed from custody, put under house arrest by Kyiv court
KYIV. Feb 11 (Interfax) - The Kyiv Appeal Court on Tuesday released six protesters from detention and put them under house arrest, the Kyiv regional prosecutor's office said.
The prosecution had asked for the six men to be left in custody, claiming there was evidence incriminating them, the office said in a statement made available to Interfax.
The statement said there were currently criminal proceedings against 18 protesters but that they would be amnestied if certain conditions were met.
"First of all, the buildings or premises of bodies of state authority or local government that were occupied during protests must be vacated, and those who work there must be enabled to proceed to their work stations. Secondly, the transportation communications on Hrushevsky Street in Kyiv must be unblocked. Thirdly, all other streets, squares and boulevards in Kyiv and other parts of Ukraine must also be unblocked," the statement quoted regional prosecutor Mykhailo Vytyaz as saying.
The office said those demands did not apply to sites of peaceful protests.
