According to the lawyer, Masi Nayyem, the goal of the action is “to force the prosecutor’s office to urgently, as soon as possible, issue new suspicions and complete an investigation into Mr. Manger.” He explained that if they continue wasting time, “there will be even less trust for the investigation.”
The defender said that suspicions should be handed over to the former chairman of the Kherson Regional State Administration, Andrii Hordeyev, and his deputy, Yevhen Ryshchuk, as well as to others probable customers for the Gandzyuk murder.
The activists also called on the Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko to come to them. Activists accused the prosecutor general of disclosing criminal proceedings.
