‘We can see the great pressure from the law enforcement system, judiciary system that takes place in the form of the cues, direct offers to our clients to stop cooperation with us through the particular political cases. More risks appeared for the defense and every questioning is only the reason for the growth of the risks for the defense because the questions are comfortless and the witness will never hear such questions on the street. It leads to the dissatisfaction with our work from the witnesses’, he said.
