Today on June 16th of 2014 in Verkh-Isetsky regional courthouse in Yekaterinburg there was court session chaired by judge N.A.Netsvetayeva over petition of convict Evgeniy Terekhin and attorney Roman Kachanov. There applicants were challenging denial of access for attorney Roman Kachanov in January 2014. Attoeney Kachanov came over to Terekhin to provide him with legal help concerning «Case in Kopeysk». Convict Terekhin has been in hospital at penal colony № 2 where according unspoken «rule» colony administration doesn’t allow attorneys and human rights defenders to help prisoners.
During court session Roman Kachanov has filed a motion to strike off a case due to the fact that there is the case over challenge of Order 119 of Ministry of Health № 640 and Ministry of Justice № 190 from 17.10.2005. «On medical treatment for convicts». This orders are reason for denial to meet with convicts.
We’ve already written that mentioned Order № 119 was declared to be unlawful by Supreme Court of the Russian Federation. However, this decision hasn’t come into force yet that’s why Roman Kachanov and Evgeniy Terekhin cannot make reference to it and they have filed a motion to strike off this case.
