You're reading: State Prosecutors may take charge of journalist Klymentyev disappearance case

The Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine may take charge of the investigation into the disappearance of Vasyl Klymentyev, chief editor of the Kharkiv-based Novyi Stil weekly, if it is determined that police officers were involved into the crime.

"We still do not know who committed this crime … If this crime is solved and it is established that law enforcement officers were involved in it, we will take charge of this case," Prosecutor General Oleksandr Medvedko said at a briefing in Kyiv on Thursday.

Medvedko also said that the case is qualified as a premeditated murder, thus it falls under the jurisdiction of the Interior Ministry of Ukraine.

Klymentyev, chief editor for the Kharkiv-based weekly Novyi Stil, disappeared on August 11 and is still missing.

His colleagues have expressed concern that Klymentyev’s disappearance is connected to his professional work.
