The High Anti-Corruption Court has decided to summon former president Viktor Yanukovych to a hearing.
A correspondent of the Ukrainian News Agency has reported from the scene.
Yanukovych’s lawyers have appealed against the summoning.
The court has scheduled the hearing for October 4.
As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the High Anti-Corruption Court has permitted in-absentia investigation against Yanukovych and his son within the case upon appropriation of the Mezhyhiriya residence.
Within the case, the National Anticorruption Bureau (NACB) and the Specialized Anticorruption Prosecutor’s Office (SACPO) ask the High Anti-Corruption Court to arrest Yanukovych and his son Oleksandr.
