 Lutsenko is Being Transferred to the Colony

Former minister of internal affairs of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko illegally transferred from Kiev Pre-Trial Detention Center to Menskaya Colony.

According to NUNS deputy Vladimir Ariev, the transfer was conducted with procedure violations "since an appeal was filed for the sentence of the Pechersk court".

Ariev has also noted that the authorities wanted to transfer him before the elections, "so he is not in Kiev during the election campaign and to complicate people's access to him, including his lawyers".

"On the whole we expected such decision", said Ariev and added that the ex-minister was to be transferred by the end of the summer.

In the morning Lutsenko was transported out of Lukyanovskoye Pre-Trial Detention Center and is being transferred to Menskaya Colony #91 to serve his sentence.
