Lawyer sues ex-Pres Yushchenko for misuse of office in 2008

Lawyer Stanislav Batrin filed a lawsuit against ex-Pres Viktor Yushchenko for overstepping his authority during the gas stand-off in 2008.

The lawyer accuses Yushchenko of overstepping his authority when the incumbent banned the then Naftohaz head Oleh Dubyna to sign a lucrative gas contract with Russia at $235 per 1,000 cu m of gas.
Yushchenko is also accused of issuing illegal instructions to HaftoHaz regarding the pumping and supplies of gas.
Earlier, lawyer Batrin sued the cabinet and state property fund, demanding the cancellation of 2009 gas contract between Russia Gazprom and Ukraine Hanfohaz, Ukrayinska Pravda reports June 25.
