Today at 10 a.m. in the presence of a large number of Ukrainian and foreign journalists, the judicial Collegium Obolonskaya court under the chairmanship of Vladislav Devyatko continued to listen to the resonant case.
Representatives of state charge of Crimea Yury and Ruslan Kravchenko (both officers of justice were in the same role on the process in the Goloseevsky court of the Ukrainian capital, where the defendants were former Russian soldiers Evgeny Erofeev Alexander Alexandrov) insist on the procedure of conviction of the former President.
In response, the defender of the fugitive leader of the power demanded to subpoena… the attorney General Yury Lutsenko, so that he performed his duties according to the proof of guilt Yanukovych. Lutsenko in the Verkhovna Rada before the verdict of the Obolonsky court called Viktor Yanukovych is a traitor to the Motherland and thereby assumed the obligation of a full member of the group of state prosecutors.
The officers of the military prosecution, the defense has no claims, they are “people dependent”, follow the instructions of the attorney General.
The court granted the defendant’s motion.
The lawyer Serdyukov announced another petition calling on suzbijanje of a number of officers of the office of Sovereign protection which confirm the fact of direct threats to the life of the defendant. So, one of the witnesses heard about the intention to use military aircraft for a forced landing of a plane with Yanukovych, others can confirm the facts of the shots on the car with the former President by “the rebels” and so on. So, the officer Ivantsov from the personal security of the ex-President only through the works of several shots in the air from the service weapon have been persuaded the attackers to abandon the capture of the car with Yanukovych.
Some of the current Ukrainian politicians said about the “undoubted benefits” of the execution of the Yanukovych – if he dare cross the border of Russia with Ukraine with the purpose of personal participation in the trial in Obolon. Deputies of the Verkhovna Rada Leonid Yemets and Anton Gerashchenko called for “violent actions” against Viktor Yanukovych, although he has repeatedly declared its readiness to cooperate with the investigation and personally participate in the judicial process.
At 10.51 GMT the trial panel of three judges – Constantine Vasalatiy, Maxim and Vladislav Titov Devyatko – retired to the deliberation room, where it will decide whether to grant the defense’s motion about the impossibility to consider the case against Yanukovych in the absence of the accused.
