Lawyers for Ukrainian political prisoner Prykhodko are preparing a complaint to the European Court of Human Rights
The defence of Ukrainian political prisoner Oleh Prykhodko is preparing an appeal and a complaint to the European Court of Human Rights.
Crimean Solidarity reports about it.
It is noted that the lawyer Nazim Sheikhmbametov visited Prikhodko in a pre-trial detention centre.
The lawyer stated that the complaint would be sent to the European Court of Human Rights as soon as the verdict in the Prykhodko case came into force. The collection of documents is underway.
"In addition, the defence reviewed all volumes of the criminal case and received the minutes and audio recordings of court hearings - all this will be attached to the complaint", - was informed in a statement.
Lawyers are awaiting the appointment of an appellate hearing - the prosecutor's office decided to appeal the sentence of Oleg Prykhodko, demanding to give him 11 years in prison instead of 5.
The state of health of the client, the lawyer assesses as "stably satisfactory".
"He is an elderly man (this year he will turn 63 years old) and his chronic diseases are exacerbated in the conditions of unreliable prison medicine", - Sheikhmbametov says.
