Yury Lutsenko starts his 10th month in jail – on trumped-up charges

The Pechersk court today has again refused to release Yury Lutsenko on bail despite new evidence of his innocence after the interrogation of 9 key witnesses in his case, DT.UA reports Oct. 10.

Many witnesses of the prosecution has gone back on their earlier evidence, saying it was wrung out of them by prosecutors. 

The charges against Lutsenko are laughable – giving his driver the rank of a commissioned officer (a typical practice with all previous interior ministers’ drivers) and allegedly overspending budgetary funds to mark the day of police.
