ECHR refuses to consider complaint of MH17 ex-witness Tsemakh

The European Court of Human Rights has rejected the complaint of Volodymyr Tsemakh, the ex-witness in MH17 case, and refused in the ban of his extradition to the Netherlands.

“We are disappointed with the ECHR decision to reject our request for the approval of interim measure, which would allow to ban the extradition of Tsemakh to the Netherlands,” his lawyer Anatoly Kucherena said.

Besides, he added that despite such a decision of the Strasbourg court, he will continue to look for other ways to prevent the extradition.

“The statement of the ECHR that the replies to all requests were filed to my address is weird. I did not get anything from the ECHR; it is unknown where they filed them,” the lawyer reported.
