Russian investigators will consider whether to extend the house arrest of AFK Sistema head Vladimir Yevtushenkov, the Russian Investigative Committee's representative at the Moscow Arbitration Court said on Thursday, when answering a question from Interfax.
The investigator declined to provide further details, including whether or not Yevtushenkov could be allowed to work at his office.
Yevtushenkov can leave his apartment only if investigators allow him, he said.
"Under a court ruling, he is banned from going outside. Nothing has changed," the investigator said.
The Moscow City Court ruled on October 1 that Yevtushenkov can leave his apartment, where he is being held under house arrest, with the consent of investigators.
Moscow's Arbitration Court ruled earlier that shares of the oil company Bashneft acquired by AFK Sistema and Sistema Invest should be returned to the state.
