The Pechersk Court of Kyiv seized the property of ex-President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.
The former president’s lawyers consider this a violation of all procedures.
According to Poroshenko’s lawyer Ihor Golovan, the lawyers learned about the court session from a text message received the day before on the phone of one of the lawyers.
According to him, the review was conducted at the request of the DBR prosecutor, but the bureau does not have the right to petition the Pechersk Court, as it is located in the Shevchenkiv district.
“We know that this is the president’s office and President Zelenskyi is personally persecuting Poroshenko, and the SBI, the Prosecutor General’s Office is just a tool. And that’s why they are going to the Pechersk court again,” said Golovan.
In addition, he says, under current legislation, such petitions can only be considered in the presence of Poroshenko.
Poroshenko himself is currently abroad, but he has already announced that he will return to Ukraine on January 17.
He held meetings there with the Ecumenical Patriarch, as well as many politicians and officials of the EU countries.
“I am not returning to defend myself from Zelenskyi, but to defend Ukraine from incompetent leadership and external aggression. From the attempts of green kleptocrats to build an authoritarian regime and suppress the opposition, as happened in Belarus, Russia and Kazakhstan. And how Yanukovych tried in vain to do this in Ukraine”, – Poroshenko wrote on Facebook.
Suspicion of treason
On December 20, the DBR and SBU announced that Petro Poroshenko was suspected of treason for supplying coal to Ukrainian CHP plants from the DPR and LPR.
Law enforcement officers say they sent him the suspicion by mail. However, the defenders of the ex-president insisted that the suspicion was not handed over to their client in a legal way.
“He, acting according to a previous conspiracy by a group of persons, in particular from among the representatives of the top management of the Russian Federation, contributed to the activities of the terrorist organizations “LPR” and “DPR”, – the investigators said.
“In the opinion of the investigation, by their actions, the participants in the proceedings made Ukraine’s energy sector dependent on the Russian Federation and terrorist organizations,” the SBI said.
The ex-president’s motive for colluding with Russia in the fall of 2014 was allegedly to prevent a drop in the rating.
Poroshenko completely denies his guilt.
In this case, Poroshenko’s accomplice is one of the leaders of the “Opposition Platform – For Life” and the best man of Vladimir Putin, Viktor Medvedchuk, who denied all the charges.
He is under house arrest
