The case of the Ukrainian Pavlo Gryb was returned to the prosecutors for the review, as the journalist Iryna Romaliyskaya wrote on Facebook.
“The judges’ panel of North Caucasian District Military Court in Rostov decided to return the case for review. Gorelov is the presiding judge,” she wrote.
Later, on air of 112 Ukraine, Romaliyska said that the reason the criminal indictment was returned is that it was documented wrong.
“The presiding judge noticed that the indictment comprised an older version of the article #205 of Russia’s Criminal Code. It provides imprisonment up to eight years, and in 2016 a new version of the article came into force, which increases the legal liability – up to ten years of imprisonment. That is why the criminal indictment was returned to the prosecutor’s office,” she explained.
She noted that generally the session was held in a calm atmosphere. Yet, the criminal inducement has many unclear moments.
“The prosecutor read the indictment according to which Pavlo Gryb urged a Russian pupil in Sochi to commit a terrorist attack. Allegedly, he told her how to make an explosive device so that she could bring in into action at a school assembly on May 30, 2017. But for some reasons, she did not do it, and the prosecutor did not explain why. Afterward, Pavlo was detained in August and allegedly, he was acting under the order of the third person in this case. It remains unknown who is that person,” Romaliyskaya stated.
After the criminal indictment which the prosecutor was reading within around seven minutes, Gryb was allowed to take the floor. He stated that he did not agree with the accusations and stressed that some “critical errors” were made during the investigation.
Pavlo Gryb is the son of the former Ukrainian border guard Igor Gryb. The Russian special service detained the 19-year-old Pavlo 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 Hryb of preparing a terrorist attack in a school in Sochi (a city in Krasnodar Krai, Russia, located on the Black Seacoast, - ed.).
Reportedly, the Russian court began its consideration of the criminal proceedings against Pavlo Gryb who is accused of fostering terrorism.
Earlier, Ihor Gryb claimed that Pavlo is being psychologically pressured in the penitentiary facility. Pavlo Gryb, the Ukrainian political prisoner is suffering from portal hypertension. This is why he needs special medicine on the daily basis. The Ukrainian side had repeatedly expressed the corresponding requirement. The Russian Federation responded that the Ukranian wasn’t experiencing health problems.
