Oleksandr Lysak, a lawyer of a detained Odesa Mayor Hennady Trukhanov, claimed that groups of young people are likely to come to the building of Solomensky District Court in Kyiv to put pressure on the court, informs.

According to the lawyer, he hopes that law enforcement authorities will provide order in the courthouse.

“Everything happening looks quite weird. Obviously, organizing a crowd to support prosecution means that some particular forces try to use investigation in an unfair manner,” Oleksandr Lysyak said.

As we reported earlier, Kyiv Solomensky District Court holds the session on preventive measures on Gennadiy Trukhanov, Odesa mayor, on Pavlo Vuhelman, his deputy and on other people involved.

The NABU detectives under the guidance of the prosecutors of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office served charges on Trukhanov due to the suspect of the embezzlement through the malpractice. Moreover, three people were detained on the same criminal proceeding.
