Суд не разрешил засекретить место пребывания Януковича

The former President will be questioned via videoconference.

Svyatoshinsky district court dismissed the petition of the lawyer of ex-President Viktor Yanukovych to disclose the place of his stay. The corresponding decision was announced by presiding judge Sergei Dyachuk, reports ЛІГА.net.

Today during a court session in the case of former Berkut officers, the lawyer Yanukovych Vitaliy Serdyuk gave a written application about the security measures of the client – confidentiality and non-disclosure of statements of its location.

This is due to the fact that Yanukovych should be further interrogated in the videoconference as a witness in the murder of 48 activists of the Maidan on 20 February 2014.

The panel of judges of the Svyatoshinsky regional court of Kiev refused satisfaction of this petition.

“The court ruled in the petition of the lawyer Serdyuk about the security of witness in criminal proceedings to refuse Yanukovych”, – stated in the decree.

Recall that in 2014, Yanukovych fled to Russia.

Earlier, in GPU reported that Yanukovych will give the explanations through lawyers.
