According to Ihor Gryb, the court session was held in closed session on Saturday, April 28. It is noted that the judge, seeing the Ukrainian consul and Pavel Grib's mother in the courtroom, asked them to leave the premises.
According to Ihor Gryb, for more than 8 months, which Pavlo spent in jail, he was not given a single date with his mother.
"During this time, we received only one letter from him, and he received a letter from a citizen of Ukraine," Ihor Gryb said.
He added that during his stay in the prison his son's eyesight deteriorated significantly.
'The investigation team has been putting a lot of pressure on him. It's tough; last year, it was different, and now it changed. They imposed certain nutrition limits. When we passed him some food last time, they refused, explaining that he needed dietary nutrition. They refused to take cheese and meat products,' he said.
According to Ihor Gryb, he has no idea about his son's actual health conditions.
'They did not let the doctors see him - nor his mother, actually. The court hearing should take place soon. We hope his Mom will at least have a chance to look at him. Last time she saw him was March 2. She says she could not recognize him; he looked very different from what he used to look', Pavlo Gryb concluded.
