Judge Hanna Medushevska has refused to close the criminal case against former Interior Minister Yuri Lutsenko, with authorizing illegal surveillance of Valentyn Davydenko, driver of the former first deputy head of the Security Service Volodymyr Satsiuk, at whose summer house then candidate for presidency Viktor Yushchenko had a dinner, after which he felt bad and was diagnosed with dioxin poisoning.

The Judge read out this decision after returning from the deliberation room, the press office of the People's Self-Defense party reported.

According to Judge Medushevska the court can decide on case closure only after studying all proofs and listening to experts' opinions and witnesses. The judge considers the request to close the criminal case at this stage premature.

In connection with the engagement in another trial the Judge Medushevska announced a break in the trial against Lutsenko until May 18.
