As the court representatives informed, the hearing is scheduled for August 29. «It is only about changing the preventive measure. Date of the trial on the merits and composition of the court has not yet been determined,» the court said.
On August 21, the Supreme Court sent the criminal case for review due to newly discovered circumstances.
