Prosecutor General Yury Lutsenko did not provide evidence concerning the links Medvedchuk with the people’s Deputy Hope Savchenko, therefore, can have no claim to it. Such opinion on air of TV channel “112 Ukraine” stated the journalist Irina Tyrant.
“I can not agree with the statement that after the statements made by Lutsenko about Medvedchuk charges, it was necessary to give some answer or here or there. If he is guilty, then give some proof, if not, we would have to apologize. But Mr Lutsenko and apologized and recanted his accusations, although he acknowledged that, legally, any claims it to Medvedchuk, no,” she said.
The tyrant also stressed that Ukraine should work on the presumption of innocence.
“In the whole world there’s such a thing called the presumption of innocence. No one dares man to press charges, call a criminal, to assert that he is up to something, until finally proven in court and no sentence. It is in European countries, our country is unfortunately not one of them. We can call a person a criminal, separatist of any enemy, without reason,” she added.
Note, August 2, at a briefing Yury Lutsenko said that the investigation examines the Association of the Hope Savchenko and Vladimir Ruban Viktor Medvedchuk and his entourage, not only in recent years, but in 1990-ies. However, the investigation now there is no any evidence to show why any status other than a witness: “We are studying the possibility of its ties with any anti-Ukrainian activities. And not only in this matter,” – said Lutsenko.
