Mukachevo case: activists blocked the court because of the postponement of hearing
Activists blocked Mukachevo City and District Court, where the hearing in the case of "Mukachevo shooting" began at 9 am.
The blocking was caused by the judge's decision to postpone the meeting to September 21, the UKRINFORM correspondent reports.
All four detainees and the victims were delivered to the court. The street leading to the court was blocked by the police, 30 police officers were in the courtroom.
"Today, the defense again petitions for a change of the pretrial restraint against the detainees. Two men had gunshot wounds, another one was wearing Elizarov device for almost a year. Doctors say that he needs medical aid and can not be kept in jail. But after hearing the petition to change the pretrial restraint (which is detention, which was extended until November), the judges left the courtroom. The prosecutors left too. They proposed to postpone the hearing to September 21.
This is nonsense," - the lawyer of the "Right Sector" members Roman Buhtoyarov said.
Meanwhile, the hall of Mukachevo City and District Court was blocked by the activists who demand consideration of the motion for the change of pretrial restraint against the "RS" members.
Currently, the defendants, the victims and law enforcement officers are in the blocked courtroom.
Yesterday, activists staged a picket near the Prosecutor General's office, durng which they demanded a fair and impartial trial.
Currently, the blocking continues
