Pechersk District Court of Kyiv has started debates on the case against former Interior Minister Yuri Lutsenko with the performance of the state prosecution.

The state prosecution is convincing judges that the guilt of Yuri Lutsenko regarding illegal employment of his driver Leonid Prystupliuk, as well as granting him with and apartment and pension, is fully proved.

"The guilt of defendant Lutsenko has been fully proved for the period of the pre-pretrial investigation and court hearings. Lutsenko's testimonies also prove his insincerity before the court and absence of remorse for committed crimes," representatives of the state prosecution noted.

Consequently, the prosecutors in the criminal case have asked the Pechersky District Court to sentence the ex-minister to four-and-a-half years in prison, to ban him from holding state positions for three years and set a fine at the amount of 293 thousand hryvnias.

The prosecutors have also asked the court to give the defendant Leonid Prystupliuk three-year suspended prison sentence with probation period and a fine at the amount of 693 thousand hryvnias.
