The Higher Specialized Court of Ukraine for Criminal and Administrative Cases has postponed the hearing of an appeal by former Ukrainian acting defense minister Valeriy Ivaschenko against his sentence until 1000 on March 12.

The panel of judges passed this decision because of Ivachenko's absence for health reasons.

As reported, Kyiv's Pechersky District Court sentenced Ivaschenko to five years in prison on April 12, 2012, banning him at the same time from occupying government and administrative positions for three years. Ivaschenko's pretrial detention since August 21, 2010 has been counted toward the prison term set by the court.
