Tomorrow the court will decide whether the arrest of the deputy assistant on Narodna Square was legal
The ruling regarding the assistant of the people's deputy of Ukraine Valeriy Cherniakov - Tomas Lelekach - will be announced tomorrow at 09.00. This was announced today at the meeting by the judge, the head of Uzhgorod city and district court V.Domnitsky.
As you know, Thomas Lelekach, as well as activists and opponents of the reconstruction of Narodna Square, was arrested by the police on October 5. Everyone is charged under Article 185 of the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offences - persistent failure to obey the lawful demands of the police.
During the trial, Mr. Lelekach explained that he was not resisting the policemen. On that day, he was on the square at the order of the deputy from "Svoboda" Valeriy Cherniakov, because activists had asked him for help.
According to Thomas Lelekach, at the time of the arrest he was outside of the so-called construction site, while policemen arrested him when he approached them to ask on what grounds they had arrested one of the men involved in the incident.
Judge V.Domnitsky heard the arguments of Tomas Lelekach, read out explaination of the police officers and adjourned the hearing for tomorrow at 09.00.
Another hearing - of the activist Tomas Tomas - was adjourned by Uzhgorod city and district court for October 22.
Tomorrow, October 16, the court will continue to hear the case on similar charges against the journalist Oleg Dyba (10.00).
As you know, Uzhgorod city and district court convicted activists Oleksandr Volosyansky and S.Beley and sentenced them to fines - 150 and 136 UAH.
