Who’s responsible for killing Gyorgy Gongadze?

A delegation from the National Union of Journalists, led by its general secretary, Jeremy Dear, will go to the Ukrainian embassy in London at 09:45 (changed from 10.30) on Friday 16 September, to express our concerns to the charge d’affaires about the lack of progress in the case of Gyorgy Gongadze.

That day is the fifth anniversary of Gongadze's death. Please join us if you can, and pass this email on to friends and colleagues.

The embassy is at 60 Holland Park, London W12. (Nearest tube: Holland Park on the Central line.)

As you may know, three low-level interior ministry officers are expected to go to trial shortly for their part in Gyorgy’s murder. But those who instigated the killing are further than ever from justice. A report on the continuing failure of the investigation, by the IFJ, NUJ, Gongadze foundation and Institute of Mass Information, will be published this week.
