MOSCOW, December 14 (Itar-Tass) —— An ambulance was called to the court for ex-policeman Dmitry Pavlyuchenkov who is charged with the murder of Anna Politkovskaya, judge Alexander Zamashnyuk said at the beginning of the court meeting.
The court meeting was halted to call an ambulance team to examine the defendant.
At the beginning of the meeting, Pavlyuchenkov, who appeared almost an hour later, said he felt unwell after a relanium injection. His attorney Karen Nersesyan explained that Pavlyuchenkov felt unwell on Friday morning and a specialist at the prison gave him a relanium injection, but it did not help, but worsened his state. The attorney noted relanium was prescribed by doctors.
When asked about his state, Pavlyuchenkov said he had speech and coordination problems and did not object that an ambulance was called to the court.
