Lutsenko returned to prison
Irina Lutsenko, wife of imprisoned former Interior Minister and opposition politician, asserts that her husband’s two weeks of treatment in hospital ended as soon as the European Court of Human Rights public hearing in his case was over (on Tuesday) and the international experts left Ukraine. She asserts that the authorities know that Lutsenko’s defence alleges violation of Article 3 of the European Conveniton in connection with the failure to provide timely and proper medical care, this constituting inhuman and degrading treatment.
She says that he has been returned to the SIZO with medical conditions, namely Digestive Tract Varicose Veins, the beginning stages of cirrhosis, confirmed sugar diabetes and viral hepatitis.
