Five men in custody suspected of involvement in attack on journalist Chornovol - Interior Ministry

27-12-2013 14:51

The Interior Ministry said on Friday that five men were in custody, suspected of involvement in the crime against journalist Tetyana Chornovol.

As we have reported, Tetyana Chornovol, a well-known Ukrainian journalist and public activist, who had published a series of materials exposing misdeeds of high-ranking officials and given extensive coverage of mass rallies in Kyiv, was brutally beaten on a highway near Kyiv on Tuesday night. When she was driving home from Kyiv, her car was pursued by an SUV and hit several times. When she stopped, unknown men ran up to her car, broke the side glass, dragged her out, and beat her up. She was found in her car by road policemen with multiple face injuries and taken to the nearest hospital. Now she is in an intensive care unit at a clinic in Kyiv. Doctors say her life is out of danger, but full recovery may take weeks. "On Friday morning, police detained the fifth suspect. According to available evidence, he was directly involved in the beating of Chornovol," Investigator-in-Chief Mykola Chinchin told reporters. According to him, the suspects, who were initially charged with an act of hooliganism, are now charged with a graver crime: deliberate infliction of heavy bodily injury.
