Judge Semerak will not be judging Oleg Dyba
The investigating judge of Uzhgorod city and district court Igor Semerak will not be considering change of the pre-trial restaraint imposed on the editor of the online edition "Zakarpattya Online" Oleg Dyba. This decision after two hearings was taken by Uzhgorod City and District Court Judge Oleksiy Lemish.
"This is the second consecutive small tactical victory in this criminal case, forged by Ivan Voloshin, the deputy of Uzhgorod City Council, in close "cooperation" with "policeman" Serhiy Sharanych, who, according to the will of circumstances, happened to be the chief of the Transcarpathian police - Oleg Dyba comments the situation. - Voloshin faces multiple criminal charges.

I have gone through that. On August 20, the Administrative Court of Transcarpathian region will be considering administrative proceedings on the incidents on Narodna Square last fall. It was returned to Uzhgorod for reconsideration, under my appeal, by the Administrative Court of Appeal in Lviv. That case was also falsified based on fake police reports and the protocol signed by police authorities. Now, someone will have to answer for those crimes. This should be a warning to the investigator M.Opalenyk who is now falsifying criminal proceedings in favor of third-party customers.

But it will definitely come..."
