The court started to consider the case of Pavel Volkov from the beginning

Daily hearings on the case of the journalist Pavel Volkov have started. Over the period of two weeks the judicial collegium will consider all the evidence previously collected by the SBU and appealed by the lawyers of the journalist, because the prosecutor filed a motion to consider the indictment from the beginning in connection with the replacement of the judge.

On November 21 the journalist’s identification code and his internal and foreign passport were returned back to him.

Recall that the journalist Pavel Volkov was arrested on September 27, 2017. In connection with his professional activity, he is charged under part 2 of article 110 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine – infringing on the territorial integrity of Ukraine (by a group of persons) and article 258-3 – giving other assistance to terrorists.

On October 25, the court refused to grant the Prosecutor's request to extend the journalist Pavel Volkov’s measure of restraint in the form of detention, without choosing an alternative. After spending more than a year in jail in Zaporozhye,the journalist was released.

The case of Pavel Volkov is being constantly monitored by the "Uspishna Varta" human rights platform.
