“I’m an individual in the practice of law and are not included in any bar Association, do not have assistants, explained Machacek. — The law on free assistance eliminates the involvement of multiple public defenders. Therefore, given the particular complexity of the criminal proceedings <…> I believe that better and more adequate protection of Yanukovych, I can’t take part in the further consideration of the case <…>”.
