Attorneys of the head of the Kherson Regional Council Vladyslav Manger are trying to cancel in the court his status of a suspect in the case of the assassination of activist Kateryna Handzyuk. One of the official’s lawyers Oleksandr Shadrin stated in a comment to Hromadske.
According to him, lawyers have filed a suit to the Shevchenko District Court of Kyiv. “The meeting was scheduled for today, but in connection with the absence of the prosecutor it was postponed,” said Shadrin.
He also added that the reasons why the prosecutor did not come were not informed. “We do not believe that there was sufficient reason to make such a decision – to report the suspicion. We consider it unfounded,” added the lawyer.
