EU envoys visit Ukraine's ex-interior minister Lutsenko
KYIV. Feb 4 (Interfax) - European Parliament's ex-president Pat Cox, former Polish president Alexander Kwasniewski and European Parliament adviser Arnoldas Pranckevicius have visited Ukraine's ex-interior minister Yuriy Lutsenko at a prison in Chernihiv region where he is serving his term.
The visit lasted about 90 minutes, the State Penitentiary Service has reported.
"The visitors did not express any complaints or criticism to the prison administration," it said.
Reports said earlier that Cox and Kwasniewski started overseeing the trial of ex-prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko on behalf of the European Parliament on June 11 under an agreement reached between Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov and European Parliament President Martin Schultz.
Their mandate was subsequently extended to the trial of Lutsenko and former acting defense minister Valeriy Ivashchenko . The observers' work was suspended when parliamentary elections began in Ukraine and was resumed when the elections finished.
