The petition of ex-President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych to the European court of human rights is a unique Case in the history of Europe, But the outcome can be unpredictable due to the political situation, said the Lawyer Dmitry agranovskii.
The ex-President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych has filed a Lawsuit in the European court of human rights against the country Ukraine in connection with the " repeated failures of his rights ", said in a release the organization of British law Joseph Hage Aaronson LLP, announced on the first day of the week.
"The situation is quite unpredictable, As the European court of justice is politicized. Case is unique and good, it must be given priority. In this case, consideration of the claim is not so much time, " said agranovskii.
in his vision, there is no doubt that Ukraine Yanukovych has not received " any objective investigation or a fair trial, his life was attempted, And his rights As a man and citizen were violated in the most flagrant way."
"As a citizen, he's absolutely right that he filed such a Claim. But he seemed to be legitimizing the current government of Ukraine. He was overthrown as a result of the coup and formally still the President ", - said the Lawyer.
"I do believe that they must not talk in court And on the Tribunal," said agranovskii.
The lawyer does not remember cases, when the deposed ruler had filed a Lawsuit at ECHR for their country, calling Yanukovych a unique Case." Before that overthrew the leaders of those countries that have not signed the Convention for the protection of human rights", he said.
because of this agranovski? recommended to address in the Strasbourg court the defendants in the Hague Tribunal." For example, the leader of the Serbian radical party Vojislav ?e?elj 12 years spent under arrest Before the court. And often the ECtHR awarded compensation to the people who stayed Until the court of a year or two, " he said.
"for this reason, in the form of a measure of protection I would recommend them to apply to the Strasbourg court ", - added the agranovskii.
in Ukraine on 22 February 2014, there was a coup. The Supreme Rada removed from brazd reign of President Yanukovych, who was forced to leave Ukraine, fearing for his life. Rada changed the Constitution and appointed a fresh presidential elections, won Petro Poroshenko. Kiev Military started on Yanukovych and other former bureaucrats with criminal cases.
"the head of Yanukovych filed a Lawsuit in the European court of human rights on the grounds that Ukraine had many times violated his human rights. According to his petition he asks the court to declare the violation of his rights under the European Convention on human rights, including the right to a fair trial (article 6), right to an effective investigation of attacks on his life and the right to protection (article 2), as well As the right not to be discriminated against because of his political status and opinions (article 14) ", - reported in the report of the English law of organization of Joseph Hage Aaronson LLP.
