The Case of Muravitsky: Kiev Regime Once Again Violates the European Convention on Human Rights

Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard


The Court of Appeal once again postponed the hearing on the case of Vasily Muravitsky concerning the complaint that the arrest of the journalist was carried out not according to the precepts of law.

This information was given to the correspondent of Politnavigator by the journalist’s lawyer Andrey Gozhy.

“The hearing was postponed once again. The official reason is that in Ukraine the distribution of cases between judges is done by an automated system. And as the judges are on holiday, or they are not here, the automated system cannot create a trio that will consider this case. And as also the holidays connected to Independence Day approach, the appeal was postponed to the end of the month and the beginning of September. It is quite possible that the judges simply do not want to consider the case – and this is already a good tendency, after all, they understand perfectly how sometimes political cases finish. Or maybe they still did not receive the order from Bankova Street on how exactly this case should be considered – it means that the regime doubts,” he said.

Also Vasily Muravitsky’s lawyer reported to Politnavigator about the conditions of his client’s detention.

“The cell is forty square meters, and contains thirteen people. Showering is once a week. Walking is one hour a day in a concrete corridor with a caged roof. All of this is a violation of the European convention on human rights, because the treatment of the not-yet condemned must be like it is for free people. There is no communication, he can’t communicate neither with his family, nor with his lawyer. Although this opportunity must be given to him at any time. Awful sanitory conditions, including bed bugs,” summarized the lawyer.

Doesn’t it remind you of the exemplary “judgement” that is imposed on Dmitry Vasilets and Evgeny Timonin, who already for more than 18 months have been locked up and the key thrown away at the orders of the CIA-supervised Security Service of Ukraine?
