We’d like to know, for instance, who ordered the murder of journalist Georgiy Gongadze in 2000, member of parliament Yevhen Shcherban in 1996 and many others.
Unfortunately, Ukraine’s prosecutors and judges lack credibility and prove their incompetence and untrustworthiness time and again.
Currently, the trial of ex-police general Oleksiy Pukach, who is accused of being part of the conspiracy in Gongadze’s murder, is believed to be winding down. But the public will never learn if it was a fair trial or not since the proceedings have been conducted in secret. The public will also likely never get an explanation for why, despite evidence implicating them, ex-President Leonid Kuchma and ex-Verkhovna Rada speaker Volodymyr Lytyvn, are also not being tried for the crime.
