Lawyer: Melnychenko tapes to be declared invalid if court recognizes his actions unlawful
Nedilko assumed that the court could declare Melnychenko's tapes illegal evidence, referring to a ruling of the Constitutional Court, under which charges of crime cannot be based on evidence received illegally.
"As of today, Melnychenko's tapes have been declared proper evidence," he said.
The lawyer also said that the ruling of the Constitutional Court deals with evidence received illegally, but does not mention Melnychenko as a witness in the Kuchma case.
As reported, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine on October 21 ruled that criminal charges cannot be brought based on evidence obtained without respect to the constitution or in violation of the law.
