Competition for the vacancy of ombudspersons representative in charge of the freedom of speech is going on
Ombudsperson Nina Karpacheva communicated in the interview to the “Ukrainska pravda” that 10 applications for the post of ombudspersons representative in charge of the freedom of speech had been handed. At the same time, “UP” writes, Karpacheva refused to comment the information that Maria Sambur, a former lawyer of the Institute of mass information, had been provisionally appointed to this post. In summer 2003 Maria Sambur published, on the site of the IMI, the letters of Igor Goncharov, leaving out, by the information of “UP”, the fragment, where Goncharov accused President Kuchma of the connection with the murder of G. Gongadze. M. Sambur stated in her interviews that that the letters of the late “turnskin” contained no information about this. Finally, the lie was revealed, and Ms. Sambur had to leave the IMI. It is rumored that the appointment of Maria Sambur to the post of ombudspersons representative in charge of the freedom of speech is promoted by Presidents Administration.
