"You probably still remember the defector Serhii Melnychuk - former commander of Aidar, who switched from the Lyashko Radical Party faction to Ihor Yeremieiev's group. On the day when it happened, I wrote that a criminal case has long been opened in regard to Mr. Melnychuk and a petition on lifting the parliamentary immunity was in the works. [People] did not believe it. Today I received an official response from the Prosecutor General's Office. Former commander Serhii Melnychuk is suspected of involving Aidar fighters in the kidnapping of ex-head of the Ukrspyrt State Enterprise Mykhailo Labutin," Naiem wrote.
The PGO reports that the issue of criminal charges against Melnychuk and revoking his parliamentary immunity is being decided.
