Lutsenko’s wife files appeal against Pechersky District Court verdict
The Lutsenko’s wife and defense lawyer of former Interior Minister Yuriy Lutsenko, Iryna, on filed an appeal against the verdict of Kyiv’s Pechersky District Court, according to a statement posted on the Web site of the People’s Self-Defense Party.
In her complaint, Lutsenko emphasized the characterization of her client as an individual and the health of her husband, rather than on the legal technicalities of the verdict.
She also submitted the copies of all conclusions of medical commissions of the Health Ministry that examined Lutsenko during his stay in the Lukyanivsky pre-trial detention center.
As reported, on Febr. 27, 2012, the Pechersky District Court in Kyiv found Lutsenko guilty of committing official crimes and sentenced him to four years in prison, ruling to confiscate his property.
In early March, lawyer Oleksiy Bahanets challenged Lutsenko’s verdict at the Court of Appeal of Ukraine.
He said that the court registered the appeal but found it difficult to forecast when it will be considered, as the document is lengthy, and examining it and Lutsenko’s case materials will take time.
