Prymorsky district court of Odesa has left in remand far-right activist Serhiy Sternenko convicted in the case of the kidnapping of the lawmaker as Sternenko’s Telegram channel reported.

“Judge Yershova left Sternenko in the remand,” the message said.

Earlier, it was reported on the Telegram Channel that the court has agreed the consideration of the appeal of the lawyers on release of Sternenko on a particular article of the Criminal Procedure Code.

“According to this article, each judge is obliged to release a person who stays in remand illegally, including on the basis of the sentence that did not come into force legally and stopped in fulfillment,” the message says.

Serhiy Sternenko was earlier found guilty of abducting a person and sentenced to 7 years and 3 months in prison. This decision was made by the Prymorsky Court of Odesa.

The court recognized the seized during the search items as admissible evidence. Sternenko himself claims that the search of his home was carried out without a lawyer, with whom he was not allowed to contact. The testimony of local deputy Serhiy Shcherbych, who accuses Sternenko of his abduction, was also found credible.

The court also ruled for the confiscation of half of Sternenko's property as a punishment and decided to take the activist into custody in the courtroom.

It should be noted that after the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky imposed sanctions on 112 Ukraine, NewsOne and ZIK TV channels, the radical activist Sternenko announced a "hunt" for journalists of opposition TV channels.
