Six years on - who killed Gongadze?
NUJ GENERAL Secretary Jeremy Dear will lead a delegation to
Ukraine's Embassy in London on Friday 15 September, seeking
answers on the sixth anniversary of the killing of independent journalist
On 16 September 2000, 31-year-old journalist Georgy Gongadze, publisher of the Internet journal Ukrainska Pravda (www.pravda.com.ua), disappeared.
He was later found headless in a ditch in a suburb of Kiev. He had been
investigating corruption at the heart of Ukraine's government.
In the last year, the case has moved, painfully slowly, in three respects – in the courts, at the general prosecutor's office and in the parliament. Details will follow.
For further information on the delegation contact Tim Lezard.
