The renowned human rights activist, Yevhen Zakharov, says Yury Lutsenko cannot serve his sentence in a penitentiary with criminals. Many of the convicts in the Menska penitentiary where the regime wants to put Lutsenko are former policemen whom Lutsenko had put behind bars for torturing suspects, Gazeta ua writes Feb. 29.
Everything is being done by the authorities to destroy Lutsenko, Zakharov says.
“Many convicts in the Menska penitentiary were killed, but the authorities explained it by their bad health and did not investigate the murders,” he says.
Meanwhile, according to the court ruling Lutsenko’s apartment and three cars may be confiscated, The Segodnya says Feb. 29.
