Kyiv court decides to question Poroshenko in Yanukovych high treason case
The Obolonsky District Court in Kyiv has decided to summon President Petro Poroshenko for being questioned as a witness in the case in which ex-President Viktor Yanukovych is accused of high treason.
The court made the decision granting the prosecution's motion on Thursday, an Interfax-Ukraine correspondent reported.
In announcing the list of witnesses to be questioned in the courtroom, Presiding Judge Vladyslav Deviatko mentioned Poroshenko among them.
The prosecution had earlier asked the court to summon Poroshenko to be questioned as a witness in the Yanukovych high treason case. Poroshenko was not questioned during the pretrial investigation.
"I am asking you to summon Petro Oleksiyovych Poroshenko to the court as a witness for the prosecution. The prosecution realized that it had to question this witness while examining the evidence at the court hearing on December 6, 2017," Prosecutor Ruslan Kravchenko of the Main Military Prosecutor's Office said after the list of witnesses for the prosecution who were questioned during the investigation was announced.
