In Odesa, journalists of two TV channels are "wanted" by person whom they investigated

19.02.2015, 14:03

In Odesa, Oleh Maltsev, whose activities were investigated by local journalists, declared "manhunt" on them. On February 17, "Channel 7" in the program “Normal. Investigation Department on Channel Seven" broadcast a story about activities of Oleh Maltsev, who, according to the journalists' information, is engaging in financial fraud in the field of medical treatment.

In several hours after the program was aired, portraits of the journalists of the program "Normal" - Mariya Kovalska and Vyacheslav Kasima and journalist of the TV channel “Third digital” Dmytro Mykhailenko (he was also involved in producing the story on Maltsev) appeared in social networks.

The announcement promises a reward from 100 to 500 dollars for any information about any crimes committed by the journalists.

The journalists traced the source of the announcements, and found that they originated from the address of Maltsev's attorney Olga Panchenko.

The journalists do not think they are under a serious threat because of this, yet they hope that Maltsev's activity will soon attract the attention of the prosecutor's office.
