As reported by a correspondent for Censor.NET, activists and the defendant's fellows-in-arms have arrived at the court hearing. Members of the Ukrainian parliament Viktor Chumak, Boryslav Bereza and Semen Semenchenko also came to the court.
Only several journalists were allowed to enter the courtroom as it was overcrowded.
Earlier, the cassation hearing in Kolmohorov case was deferred to 11 a.m. Nov. 6 after the prosecutor was reported to be unable to appear.
Even earlier, the court of Mariupol sentenced the Ukrainian border guard to 13 years in prison for inflicting lethal injuries to a female passenger of a car as he was executing an order to use force to stop the vehicle with intruders at the checkpoint. The State Border Guard Service of Ukraine and its veterans expect a review of conviction. The Court of Appeal earlier upheld the verdict. The case was to be heard by the Superior Specialized Court of Ukraine on Nov. 2.
