DONETSK/Rostov region/, September 22. /TASS/. A Donetsk court in southern Russia has rejected the second motion of lawyers on returning the case of former Ukrainian military pilot Nadezhda Savchenko to prosecutors, a TASS correspondent has reported.
The prosecutor said these issues were already discussed during the preliminary investigation. Lawyer Ilya Novikov said the work of the investigators was not completed or was "one-sided."
A similar motion was earlier rejected at a preliminary hearing.
The prosecutor has also asked the court to suspend the lawyers of Savchenko saying they "started giving assessment to evidence in the criminal case before the trial began."
Savchenko, 34, is charged with three counts: complicity in the murder of Russian journalists, attempted murder of civilians who could suffer as a result of artillery fire and illegally crossing the Russian border. The criminal case consists of 42 volumes. The former pilot does not admit her guilt.
