You're reading: Penitentiary service: Lutsenko does not need inpatient treatment

Ukraine's imprisoned former Interior Minister Yuriy Lutsenko, who is serving a sentence in the Mena penal colony in Chernihiv region, was examined outside the colony on Thursday.

“On Oct. 11, prisoner Lutsenko was examined in Chernihiv Regional
Clinical Hospital in accordance with the recommendations given by
doctors on Oct. 2,” the press office of the State Penitentiary
Service of Ukraine reported.

The report says that according to the preliminary conclusion of
doctors, according to the results of the examination, Lutsenko has no
disease that would envisage his inpatient treatment. The patient is in a
satisfactory condition, the service added.

As reported, Kyiv’s Pechersky District Court found Lutsenko guilty of
a number of counts of abuse of office and sentenced him to four years
in prison on Feb. 27, 2012. Lutsenko was charged with the extension
of an investigative case concerning Valentyn Davydenko, the driver of
former SBU First Deputy Chief Volodymyr Satsiuk, as part of an
investigation into the poisoning of then presidential candidate Viktor
Yuschenko on Aug. 17, 2012 by Pechersky Court. The court sentenced
Lutsenko to two years in prison.

On Aug. 31, 2012, Lutsenko was taken to the Mena penal colony in Chernihiv region.
