Court Rejects Prosecution's Evidence in "Groysman's Interpreter" Case

Today, on October 8, Goloseevsky Court of Kiev conducted a hearing of the case of Stanislav Yezhov, Deputy Chief of Protocol of Prime Minister of Ukraine Vladimir Groysman, charged with treason (paragraph 1of Article 111 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine).

The court session started with replacement of judges. Marina Yesaulenko became a new judge in the Yezhov case.

The prosecutor presented documents related to the planned events of Prime Minister Groysman, found during searches of Stanislav Yezhov, as evidence of his guilt. In addition, the prosecution presented evidence of Yezhov's visits to St. Petersburg and Minsk, and demonstrated screenshots of his correspondence with olenaprekrasna@yandex.ru. Most of the evidence were returned to the prosecution by the court for revision.

Valentin Rybin, Mr. Yezhov's lawyer, requested the court to avoid protraction of the process, and submitted a request for daily hearings, which was partially granted by the court. In view of the judges' workload, three sessions were scheduled for October; the next of them will take place on 10 October.

Stanislav Yezhov was arrested at his workplace by SBU operatives on 20 December 2017; since then, he remains in custody in Lukyanovka jail of Kiev without a bail. If convicted, he may receive between 12 and 15 years in prison. Uspishna Varta human rights platform conducts ongoing monitoring of the Yezhov case.
