Lawyer Dmitry Laevskiy in his telegram channel reported that today, October 20, 2021, by order of the Minister of Justice, disciplinary proceedings were initiated against his colleague and partner in defense of Viktar Babaryka and Maksim Znak , lawyer Evgeny Pylchenko. Laevskiy noted that by the same order Pylchenko was suspended from the implementation of advocacy from today.
«A week earlier, immediately after the defense filed a complaint under the supervisory procedure against the verdict, from October 13, lawyer Natalia Matskevich, our colleague in the defense of Viktar Babaryka, was suspended from practicing law.
Now Viktar Dmitriyevich [Babaryka] is deprived of the opportunity to receive legal assistance from his chosen defenders. Comments seem superfluous»,– Laevsky wrote.
We remind that Dmitry Laevskiy was deprived of his lawyer status on July 9, 2021, two days after the announcement of the verdict against Viktar Babaryka. And on October 16, 2020, lawyer Alexander Pylchenko, his colleague in Babaryka’s defense, was deprived of the same status.
