TV channel "Rivne-1" complains that police does not investigate attack of hired thigs against journalists

21.01.2016, 22:31

Journalists of TV channel “Rivne-1” complain about failure of police to act in the investigation of hired thugs attack against the cameraman of the channel Arten Lahovsktyi and journalist Kateryna Munkachi as they were filming footage for their story on October 21, 2015 in Rivne. This information was published on the TV channel website. In spite of all promises to "control" the case given by the prosecutor's office, members of Parliament and local police, the investigation did not progress in 90 days after the crime. The channel is assured that it is not lack of evidence or eyewitnesses that is stalling the case (as there are many witnesses and a video records of the act), but lack of desire of governmental agencies to do it.
