Court process is lasting.
On 8 August 2002 the Kyiv appeal court satisfied the claim of Evhen Zakharov, a co-chairman of the Kharkov Group for human rights protection, against the decision of the Pecherskiy district court concerning the rejection of his claim about the passivity of the Kyiv city prosecutors office. The prosecutors office twice did not answer to the informational request of the plaintiff about its activities on the surveillance over the legality in the law-enforcing organs of Kyiv.
The Pecherskiy district court rejected the complaint under the pretext that chapter 31-A of the Civil-Procedural Code, which stipulates that only physical persons have the right to turn with complaints, and the request was printed on a blank of a public organization.
The appeal court returned the complaint to the Pecherskiy court for consideration by essence.
