Kyiv Court of Appeal rescheduled the hearing on the case of ex-Head of the Party of Regions faction Oleksandr Yefremov until March 15. It is reported by the correspondent of TV channel 112 Ukraine.
The lawyers tried to appeal the first arrest of Efremov, according to which he should spend time in prison until March 17. However, the lawyers refused because the lines of appeal had expired several months ago. Therefore, prosecutors considered it inappropriate to hold a meeting, because Efremov had already continued arrest 4 times. Thus, Efremov shall be detained until March 17.
In addition, the court pleased the request of lawyers who demanded that prosecutors provide original documents, since, according to them, there is no documented evidence of crimes.
