Higher Specialized Court postponed the consideration of the petition with respect to the protection of Viktor Yanukovych jurisdiction in his case for January 17. It is reported by the correspondent of 112 Ukraine TV channel.

"Vitaly Serdiuk didn’t appear before the court, he warned about it in advance. Court Prosecutor was opposed to postponing the hearing. He called it as tightening of the process", the correspondent said.

"He asked to postpone the consideration of this case earlier in the electronic application, because from January 1 to 10, he is allegedly on vacation. He requested that the judge reviewed the case on jurisdiction of Pechersk court and referred the case to another court", the correspondent added.

The prosecutors believe such a decision is delaying the process.

"Considering those things, which we handed over to the Court, I believe that the court should make a decision about giving us permission because the person is hiding in the territory of another State by the law enforcement agencies", said the prosecutor Maksym Krym.
