Семья Шеремета подала в суд на бездействие Луценко

The civil wife of the deceased journalist complains about the inaction of the public Prosecutor in this case.

Family and friends of the murdered journalist Pavel Sheremet has filed a lawsuit on the inactivity of the Prosecutor General Yury Lutsenko. On Thursday, August 2, reports Ukrainian Pravda.

In particular, the civil wife of the killed, the editor of the newspaper Olena Prytula requires to recognize her victim, according to the complaint filed by the lawyer for the family of Sheremet, Andrey Grits in the Pechersky district court of Kiev. She also believes that the explosion, which occurred at the corner of Ivan Franko and Bogdan Khmelnitsky July 20, 2016, 7:45, was a terrorist act.

“The audacity with which the terrorists acted, indicates that the purpose of the crime was not the murder of Pavel Sheremet and obtain the psychological effect of panic and oppression of the witnesses of the attack, viewers and friends of the deceased Pavel Sheremet in their own security. It is obvious that the offence is committed for the purpose of intimidation of the population and journalists in particular,” she said.

27 Feb 2018 Prytula appealed to the Prosecutor General with a statement in which he asked to investigate this case as a terrorist attack, which led to the death of a person.

“But before August 1, Yuriy Lutsenko at this statement didn’t react – pre-trial investigation under part 3 of article 258 of the criminal code has not started. The criminal procedure code allows to appeal the inaction of the public Prosecutor”, – said in a note.

So Pritula asks the court to order the attorney General “shall promptly make the information in the Unified register of pre-trial investigations and begin an investigation into the Commission of criminal offences under part 3 of article 258 of the Criminal code of Ukraine, namely the terrorist act of July 20, 2016, which led to the death of Pavel Sheremet”.

Civil wife of the deceased demands to oblige Lutsenko to recognize her victim in this production and allowed to participate in the process Hominy.

Previously, the GPU was informed that for two years in a murder investigation Sheremet has conducted more than 20 examinations, with the participation of the FBI, but the suspicion is that nobody has been reported.
