“Pavlo arrived in the court building with high temperature. But he said he was ready to be present at the session and answer the questions,” his father Igor Gryb stated.
The representative of the Prosecutor’s Office and the translator did not come to the hearing.
“I think that this is a purposeful and prepared action by the Russian side,” Igor Gryb noted.
As we reported earlier, Pavlo Gryb is the son of the former Ukrainian border guard Ihor Gryb. The Russian special service detained the 19-year-old boy on August 25, 2017, when he went to Gomel (Belarus) to meet his friend. Later, he was convoyed to Russia. The Russian law enforcers suspect Pavlo Gryb of preparing a terrorist attack at a school in Sochi (a city in Krasnodar Krai, Russia, located on the Black Sea coast, - 112 International).
Russia did not provide the European Court of Human Rights with information about the Ukrainian political prisoner Pavlo Gryb's health status.
Pavlo Gryb was not allowed to see his mother and the Ukrainian consul. Russia promises to give permission to the meeting with the consul, but only after the verdict. Yet, the consular convention signed between Ukraine and Russia does not provide for such refusal.
Denisova assured she would appeal to the representatives of the Council of Europe to get permission for meeting with the consul before the verdict is announced.
