In Chernivtsi, "Inter" journalists forced out from meeting of Public Council under Ministry of Internal Affairs Administration
On August 17 in Chernivtsi, the head of the Public Council under the Ministry of Internal Affairs Administration in Chernivetska oblast, Heorhiy Pyshnyi, asked the filming crew of the TV channel "Inter", journalist Olha Palamariuk and cameraman Ihor Riha, to leave the Public Council’s meeting.
The Council was supposed to approve the list of future heads of rayon police departments, but the journalists hoped that it would consider the scandalous case of the drunk prosecutor driving his car, a video of which was recently published. As the voting started, it turned out that there is no written list for approval in a printed form, and the voting was "blind", that is, candidate's words were supposed to be taken without any confirmation. After this was declared, Pyshnyi asked the "Inter" journalists to leave the room "as no one invited them here". The journalists were forced to wait outside for the session to end.
