KIEV, August 31 (Itar-Tass) — Former Ukrainian interior minister Yuri Lutsenko, who is sentenced to four years' imprisonment, was taken from the jail in Kiev to Prison 91 (Menskaya) in the Chernigov region. The vehicle with the prisoner guarded by Berkut special unit members left the territory of the Keiv jail on Friday morning.
The Ukrainian penitentiary service said on Thursday that Lutsenko would be taken to the Menskaya corrective colony (No. 91).
It is the only special prison in the country for former law-enforcement officers.
In February this year, Lutsenko was sentenced to four years for power abuse and embezzlement when organizing Police Day celebration in 2008-2009. The sentence of the Pechersky district court was upheld by the court of appeal in May and has come into force.
Meanwhile, the ex-minister's defence has appealed against the court sentence over another criminal case of illegal surveillance. On August 17, Lutsenko was sentenced to two years on this charge over the case of poisoning of former Ukrainian president Viktor Yushchenko in September 2004.
