Amnesty International: Savchenko convicted in Russia must go immediately for a fair retrial

Amnesty International: Savchenko convicted in Russia must go immediately for a fair retrialThe case of Ukrainian helicopter pilot Nadia Savchenko convicted in Russia must go immediately for a fair retrial, Amnesty International said.

"It is abhorrent to send Nadia Savchenko to prison after such a flawed, deeply politicized trial. The litany of dubious procedures and decisions by the presiding judge over the course of this trial shows a clear contempt for due process and suggests Nadia never had a hope of proving her innocence," John Dalhuisen, Amnesty International’s Director for Europe and Central Asia, said.

"The only way justice can be delivered both for Nadia, and the journalists who were killed, is for there to be a full and impartial investigation into her allegations and a retrial that remains free of political interference and complies with international fair trial standards," Dalhuisen noted.
