Shevchenko district court in Kyiv will hold the session, where the jury is to select the restriction measure in Nadiya Savchenko's case. She spends the night at the isolation cell of the SBU, Ukraine's state security service. Dmytro Bugai, Savchenko's lawyer told that to the press.
The defense team has just received filing petition.
'The session of Shevchenko district court is to kick off at 9 a.m. The prosecution pleads for holding her in custody,' the lawyer said.
Bugai added that the defense team is now looking into the petition, albeit very late in the evening. 'Only appendixes amount to 240 pages; we're going to spend the night over this document', he concluded, saying that the detention was illegal in the first place.
