Presenting a report on the cassation, the rapporteur summed up the essence of the complaint filed by lawyer Oleksandr Plakhotniuk against the gas verdict, an Interfax correspondent said.
In particular, the lawyer asks the verdict to be quashed and the case to be closed. The lower court ignored the defense arguments and sided with the prosecution, and an appellate court upheld this verdict, the lawyer said in the complaint.
In essence the verdict is a political decision, Plakhotniuk said. The case files also contain a number of cassation complaints against certain decisions by the Pechersky Court upheld by the appellate court.
