under which evidence was fabricated in this criminal case and the defendants’
rights were violated during their court trial.”

On Oct. 2, Dmytro
Pavlychenko, 49, and his son, Serhiy, 20, were found guilty of murdering Judge Serhiy
Zubkov at his residence in Kyiv. Dmytro Pavlychenko was given a life sentence
and his son 13 years.
