As a result of legal assistance of the Human Rights Center the convicted person, citizen of Ukraine Aleksandre Ch., who has schizophrenia was placed in the corresponding medical center.

The project coordinator Olga Kalina stated at the press-conference that Aleskandre Ch, despite the conclusion of the European Commission and alternative expertise which confirmed the psychiatric problem of the person, spent one year and 8 months in the prison. He was moved to the mental hospital only after the European Court took up the case.

Aleksandre Ch. is one of those people who were provided with legal aid within the project. He is citizen of Ukraine and is convicted for the murder of his mother. The court sentenced him to 10-year-mprisonment.
