Oleksandr Lysak, a lawyer for suspended State Fiscal Service chief Roman Nasirov, has said he and his colleagues will appeal to the European Court for Human Rights (ECHR) about the unlawful arrest of their client.

“We are dissatisfied with the decision of the court. We had hoped they would listen to our arguments and satisfy our appeal. I think we needed the decision at the appeals court level in order to file with the European court,” he told journalists on March 13 after the court hearing.

Lysak said, “We are not thinking about posting bail at this time.”
