Ah right, so the Savchenko case was a 'show' trial.

That means the Ukrainian 'show' trial don't even bother giving the defense a lawyer, they murdered the lawyer  :-\

QUITE... the opinion of most non-Russian observers, in Court.

Markje, I posted this article, BECAUSE I condemn the 'bumping off' of lawyers who defend 'unpopular' defendants - anywhere.. I have no idea of the circumstances of the death - but if it was murder, Ukraine must bring the genuine perpetrators to justice..

ps Defence - how you spelt it - was the US way ..I mention this as you normally us UK English... not to be a pendant ..I know you are interested
