 Korban’s defense moves to disqualify prosecutor charging him of forgery

Lawyers of UKROP party leader Hennadii Korban requested the prosecutor to be recused.

Censor.NET reports citing the statement of the spokesperson of the party Yevhenia Kravchuk on Facebook.

According to her, the lawyers insist that the prosecutor in the case is biased, therefore the defense has requested his removal.

Kravchuk also noted that judge of the Dniprovskyi district court of Kyiv Chaus went out to the deliberations room to consider the lawyers' motion to challenge the prosecutor.

"Earlier, the investigators of the Prosecutor General's Office in the case have introduced in a cardiogram of another person, certain Mr. Buteikin born in 1987, to the judge instead of the results of medical examination of Hennadii Korban. When the forgery was discovered by the judge, the prosecutors started looking for some "real" results of the medical examination of the UKROP leader. The defense claims evidence tampering and requests disqualification of the prosecutor who has committed forgery," UKROP party spokesperson wrote.
