Approaching four years in pre-trial detention, the 48-year-old American spoke
out of order when he addressed the judge after two of eight Ukrainian co-defendants in the
$12 million financial fraud case filed motions relating to their legal
representation and imprisonment.

 “I want to know
the rules of the court…I don’t understand them…Is this a public or private
court,” Fletcher asked Judge Iryna Dikhtiar, after a co-defendant filed a
motion to have his wife be his legal representative.

 Fletcher added:
“Is democracy represented in this courtroom?…I think that every human being
needs democratic representation in this courtroom.”
