Trials of the Ukrainians who were the observers of official human rights mission of the Italian Federation for Human Rights (Comitato Italiano Helsinki) were held today at night.
“Trials were held at night, without witnesses and lawyers. And now they are flying to Kyiv. They received their phones while boarding. Deportation,” Zemlyana said.
On February 14, it was reported that unknown who introduced themselves as officers of migration police kidnapped Ukrainian human rights activist Lyudmyla Voloshyna. She was in Kazakhstan with an International Monitoring Mission from the Italian Federation for Human Rights. The representatives of the mission link her detention with the case of Kazak judge Malik Kendzaliyev, who told her that he was fired, that he undertook pressure for the verdict which Kazak authorities did not like.
Later, Astana police reported that Lyudmyla Voloshyna and her colleague Valeriy Yavtushenko were detained for violation of the migration legislation.
