Obolonsky District Court of Kyiv summons former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych to court sessions on September 13, 14, 17 and Septemebr 18 on the case of accusing him of high treason.
According to the agenda published on Wednesday in the government's official newspaper Uriadovy Kurier, Yanukovych is due to arrive at 10:00 on September 13, 14, 17 and September 18 to participate in the court session in criminal proceedings on charges of ex-president in committing crimes under Part 5 of Article 27, Part 3 of Article 110, part 1 of Article 111, Part 5 of Article 27, and Part 2 of Article 437 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
As reported, on August 16, Kyiv's Obolonsky District Court gave one month to former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych's lawyers to prepare for debates in the hearing of a high treason case against him. Both lawyers said they needed at least three months to prepare for the debates.
After that, the court announced a recess in the hearings until September 13 and 14. Considering that five lawyers hired by Yanukovych and one state-appointed lawyer are entitled to present their case in the debates, the court also determined September 17 and 18 as reserve dates for the defense.
