 PGO senior officials put pressure on investigators of crimes against Maidan activists, - prosecutor Horbatiuk

Head of the Special Investigations Directorate of the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine Serhii Horbatiuk accuses Deputy Prosecutor General Yurii Stoliarchuk of putting pressure on the investigators of crimes against members of the Revolution of Dignity.

Censor.NET reports citing ZN.UA.

Horbatiuk confirmed that he submitted the corresponding report to Acting Prosecutor General Yurii Sevruk.

"Yes, I have actually written a report, where Stoliarchuk was openly named. I do not know who exactly masterminds this pressure, who gives these orders, but he is their immediate executor," Horbatiuk said.

According to him, the PGO senior officials have still not heard the directorate's report on investigation of crimes against the Euromaidan activists. But, nevertheless, they have been making unfounded accusations on gaps in the investigation and poor results from time to time, without specifying what exactly was meant.

Horbatiuk also recognizes as pressure the attempts of PGO officials to manage the process of summoning for questioning Yanukovych regime officials, who have been put on the "sanctions lists" and are accused of economic crimes.

"Basically, they surrendered in the end as we have served notice of suspicion to all persons involved. But, as I far as I understand, they have drawn a conclusion that they won't get anywhere with me," Horbatiuk said.
