Detention of Transcarpathian members of the Right Sector "unjust and illegal" - lawyers (+ VIDEO)

The lawyer of the members of the Right Sector Rodion Gorbenko and Volodymyr Burcha Roman Aleksandruk said that the judge's decision to extend the detention was "unjust and illegal."

"The term of the previous decision expired yesterday at 17:00. Therefore, these persons must be released immediately," - Aleksandruk said.

"Thus, the judge ruled illegal decision, as you can only extend the term of a pre-trial restraint, which is still valid, but not the term of a pre-trial restraint that has already expired. The defense will appeal the decision" - the lawyer said.

On September 9, there was a trial against two members of the Right Sector Rodion Gorbenko and Volodymyr Burcha suspected of involvement in the events in Mukachevo on July 11, where one of the members of the RS and a guard of Lanyo were killed in the shootout - the Right Sector of Transcarpathia informs. 

The judge considered the extension of their detention. Gorbenko and Burcha attended the trial by video conference, as they are now being treated in the hospital because of injuries. Burcha has a gunshot wound of a leg, Gorbenko - two bullet wounds of an arm. They are in the Transcarpathian regional hospital under the supervision of the Security Service of Ukraine officers.
