Lutsenko is helping block justice for innocent life prisoners

It is four years since Maidan’s Revolution of Dignity, and two since a draft bill first gave hope to Ukraine’s victims of grave miscarriages of justice and their families.  Hope remains, but also frustration, since Draft Law No. 2033a continues to gather dust, despite a Council of Europe positive assessment and the fact that yet another man, who was almost certainly innocent, has died in prison, betrayed to the end by Ukraine’s justice system – and its politicians. | детальніше

Do they want the killers of lawyer Iryna Nozdrovska to go unpunished?

There are increasing concerns that the haste to make an arrest over the high-profile murder of lawyer and rights activist Iryna Nozdrovska will result in the person now in custody simply being acquitted when the case gets to court.  This is hopefully not the intention, but there were already serious doubts about the prosecution’s assertion that the case was solved, and the new information from Nozdrovska’s  daughter and her lawyers are only compounding them.  | детальніше

Judges terrorized into passing 12 times less sentences on Russia-backed separatists than on Ukrainian soldiers

‘Separatists’ and Russian soldiers who commit crimes in the Donbas military zone get much lighter sentences than Ukrainian soldiers, and this has nothing to do with any difference in the gravity of their crimes.  A prominent specialist in criminal law warns that the Ukrainian authorities are failing to ensure that justice is served in Donbas, despite apparently obvious solutions to some of the main problems.  | детальніше

Court in Russian-occupied Crimea takes 5 minutes to jail Ukrainian academic for 5 years

A court in Russian-occupied Crimea has sentenced internationally-known academic Dmytro Shtyblikov to five years’ maximum security imprisonment on wildly implausible ‘sabotage’ charges.  Shtyblikov had been prevented from seeing an independent lawyer for over a year, and there are very strong grounds for believing that physical or psychological pressure was used to get him to ‘confess’. | детальніше

Poroshenko must veto law that will terminate most investigations into Maidan crimes & corruption

If Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signs a law just passed by the Verkhovna Rada, the Special Investigations Department will be forced to terminate all investigations into unsolved crimes committed during Euromaidan, however serious.  The adopted amendment to the Criminal Procedure Code [CPC] would have similar consequences for corruption and other criminal investigations, including that hanging over Andriy Lozovy, the MP who proposed the amendment.  | детальніше

Prison sentence for Ukrainian flag in Russian occupied Crimea revoked

The High Court in Russian-occupied Crimea has balked at the scale of falsification in the conviction and 3.7 year sentence passed on Ukrainian activist Volodymyr Balukh and ordered a retrial.  46-year-old Balukh, however, remains in custody ten months after his arrest on openly fabricated charges | детальніше

Dramatic Acquittals in Trial over Odesa 2 May 2014 Riots

There were violent scenes in Odesa on Monday evening following the sensational acquittal of 20 pro-Russian activists who had been charged over the fatal disturbances in Odesa on May 2, 2014.  The outrage from some quarters, and the prosecutor’s stated intention to appeal the ruling cannot hide the brutal truth that a guilty verdict, given the charges laid, would have been a travesty of justice | детальніше

25% of the new Supreme Court judges received negative assessments

The results of Ukraine’s first competition for Supreme Court judges are in. While some appointments are certainly welcome, like that of human rights lawyer Arkadiy Bushchenko, others, like the judge who sentenced Volodymyr Panasenko to life imprisonment for a crime nobody believed he had committed, are immensely frustrating. | детальніше
