In the Berdyansk district court of the Zaporozhye region on Friday, November 11, lawyer Nikolai Osipchuk was beaten. Moreover, he was attacked by a prosecutor with a group of unknown persons, and this happened in the presence of a judge.
The defender arrived at the Berdyansk City District Court for criminal proceedings, in which the term of his client’s detention expired, the National Bar Association said.
“Local prosecutor Gennady Viktorovich Fomin and unknown persons who were in the courtroom inflicted bodily harm on the lawyer. At about two o’clock he was blocked in the courthouse, ”said the victim’s colleagues.
At the moment Osipchuk is in the hospital. As other lawyers note on the Web, this is “an elderly person who is now in a very depressed state; the doctors recorded a concussion, besides, his heart aches very much. ” Moreover, other defenders argue that this is not the first such case in Berdyansk.
Eyewitnesses say that the judge was in the courtroom at the time of the beating, where it happened. However, she stated that “it was out of court”.
The National Bar Association of Ukraine appealed to law enforcement agencies, demanding an investigation into the incident.
“The fact that the prosecutor participated in inflicting bodily harm on the lawyer generally casts doubt on the observance of the rights and guarantees of citizens in Ukraine,” they noted here.
