Valentyna Telychenko, the lawyer for Gongadze’s widow, Myroslava Gongadze, told Interfax-Ukraine that Pukach’s lawyer had not appeared at the meeting for a good cause and therefore the court had moved the hearing to Thursday, Dec. 13, for 1100.

Gongadze went missing in Kyiv on Sept.16, 2000. A decapitated corpse, which experts claimed could be that of Gongadze, was found in a forest outside Kyiv in November 2000. In May 2010, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Oleksandr Medvedko stated that fragments of a skull found in July 2009 in Kyiv region belonged to Gongadze.

However, the body has yet to be buried, as the journalist’s mother Lesia Gongadze refuses to recognize that it belongs to her son.
