Anyway, the ruling to be passed by the Court of Appeals could be used to file a complaint with the European Court of Human Rights, he said.

Pechersky District Court in Kyiv on February 27 2012 found Lutsenko guilty of abuse of office and sentenced him to four years in jail. A court of appeals in Kyiv on May 16 upheld this verdict.
