Svatoslav Piskun refused to call the names of the suspects of the murder of Igor Aleksandrov
In the beginning of this week General Prosecutor Svatoslav Piskun declared that the investigation of the murder of Igor Aleksandrov, the manager of the Slaviansk TV company “TOR”, was almost completed. The General Prosecutor refused to call the names of the suspects of the murder, but said that they were staying in the preliminary prison and testifying in presence of advocates. Several days ago the press service of the Security Service of Ukraine published the information in some mass media that Aleksandrov had been murdered by the members of Kramatorsk gang “The 17th district”. In the course of the special operation the investigation group arrested ten members (including the leaders) of this gang.
It is rumored that the organizers and executors of the murder of Aleksandrov were also detained. Now the ODA are continued in order to check the connection of the detained with other ordered murders and to bring them to criminal responsibility. Svatoslav Piskun expressed his gratitude to the former militia officers, members of the investigation group, MPs from the Supreme Rada Committee for fighting the organized crime and other persons, who assisted in the investigation and clearance of the crime.
