Protection ex-the President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych in the near future will give new evidence in «maydanovsky» to the Prosecutor General of Ukraine.
«I confirm the position of your client on the availability of a range of evidence which clearly show the involvement of senior officials of the state to commit crimes against the citizens of Ukraine. Such evidence will be submitted to the General Prosecutor of Ukraine immediately after receiving them from my client » the lawyer said Yanukovych Vitaliy Serdyuk in the air channel 112 on Thursday.
According to the lawyer, to present evidence of «preparing for submission» to the Prosecutor General of Ukraine.
«They will have a defining influence on the course of the investigation», — said Serdyuk.
Answering the question of what constitutes evidence, the lawyer said: «prior To the submission of evidence to the attorney General, I will refrain from response to representatives of the Prosecutor General has not made actions to pressure on certain individuals who appear in the collected information. And because that evidence was not distorted prior to their official submission».
Serdyuk said that immediately after receiving the documents, he will give them to the Prosecutor General, but not indicated a specific date. «It will be soon,» he added.
In addition, the lawyer stressed that conveyed the suspected treason of his client. «I Yanukovych the suspicion is not passed. Because, as you all can see, at the moment when it was announced Lutsenko, I was in the room of the court in Rostov (in Russia – ed.) and have not had this opportunity,» he said.
Also the lawyer said that prosecutors «are actively manipulating public opinion» because the legislation provides for a personal presentation by the Prosecutor of the suspected person, whom it concerns. «Currently, this suspicion is not awarded, it is not received, not mailed. There is no information even about what the Russian Prosecutor General’s office received a request for international legal assistance», — said Serdyuk.
However, he expressed the view that such actions of the Prosecutor General are associated with a reluctance to question the Deputy Prosecutor General-chief military Prosecutor of Ukraine Anatolia Matios and other senior officials in the present case, as urged by the defense. He explained that we are talking about the necessity of questioning officials of Ukraine, «which took part in a secret national Security Council meeting on 28 February 2014 in addition to the Matios, Turchinov, Nalivaichenko and others who participated in the meeting.»
The lawyer said that on January 20 the defence are going to argue these motions at the hearing on the question regarding the possibility of trials in absentia conviction. «These people should be questioned, to testify publicly», — said Serdyuk.
