By leaving AutoMaidan activist Volodymyr Kadura in detention, another Kyiv court has refused to apply the amnesty law passed by a constitutional majority and in force since Dec 25.
The refusal this time was by presiding judge Maryna Antonyuk and two other judges from the Shevchenkivsky District Court in Kyiv.
The grounds (if any) provided are not clear, however the ruling comes just two days after Pechersky District Court judge Khrystyna Hladun refused to release another Bankova prisoner, Yaroslav Prytulenko, supposedly because the law was “vague” and could not be implemented. Prytulenko is one of the nine men originally detained, most after being severely beaten by Berkut riot police. All nine, including Prytulenko, have been the subject of Amnesty International urgent actions.
