Criminal case of Raylesku-Vidinski (Odessa)
27 August 2003. The court of the Tsentralny district of Odessa released journalist Paraskoviya Raylesku-Vidinski on the basis of her appeal and amnestied her. The court considered two questions: on the cessation of the coercive treatment in the special psychiatric clinic of Dnepropetrovsk and on withdrawal of the case after Article 6 item 4 of the CPC of Ukraine. As early as on 3 February 2003 the commission of psychiatrists headed by psychiatrist of higher category Mr. Chinchik, the director of the Center of medical-social rehabilitation and psychological aid, came to the conclusion that “Raylesku-Vidinski does not need the coercive psychiatric treatment”.
The criminal case of Ventseslav Raylesku-Vidinski was instituted in winter of this year. The Odessa oblast court did not issue the sanction for his arrest. This case is now considered by the investigation department of the Odessa oblast militia.
The criminal case of Paraskoviya Raylesku-Vidinski was started in May 2002 on the basis of the Criminal Code of 1961. Advocates of P. Raylesku-Vidinski are now preparing the claims about the compensation of material and moral damage inflicted to Raylesku-Vidinski by law-enforcing organs of Ukraine.
