Jurors in the Sushkevich and Belaya case announced pressure from the judge. The four jurors who delivered the verdict in the Kaliningrad doctors’ case reported pressure from the presiding judge.
This happened on Monday April 17, during a meeting to consider an appeal against the doctors’ conviction. The jurors said the judge entered their room during one of the meetings.
According to the jurors, the judge presented the case to them in the most accusatory light and also gave the defense a negative assessment. This is reported by the Novy Kaliningrad publication, citing an advocate for doctors.
The next hearing will be on April 26. The jury panel was left to hear the defendants’ final say and retire to make a decision.
Earlier, the MP for Kaliningrad announced that in Moscow the Court of Appeal postponed the hearing in the case of the Kaliningrad doctors for a month. This is the third round of the lawsuit against the doctors.
