Provided that the panel of judges rejected the petition of the defender Yanukovych to suspend the trial in connection with the alleged illness of the former President.

“The trial may be conducted by video conference. Given that medical certificates do not contain evidence that Yanukovych can not appear in court, in particular, it does not indicate that he injured the head or the organs of speech, the court sees no reason to further breaks in the trial,” said presiding judge Vladislav Devyatko.

He also added that today was 89 the trial of this case, and for each meeting Yanukovych has sent subpoenas to all known addresses of residence, as well as published in Uriadovyi Kur’єri.

Devyatko also noted that the court recognizes the right of Yanukovych to remain silent and not held accountable, because this right is guaranteed by article 15 of the International Covenant on civil and political rights and article 63 of the Constitution of Ukraine.

“The court urges the prosecution and the defence, such a stance of the Yanukovych accepted by the court, no prejudice against him, the court does not arise. In specified circumstances, considering that Yanukovych the right to protection has been implemented in full, the court retires in deliberation room to make a final decision by the court of first instance in this case,” concluded the judge.
