NUJ public meeting 16 September 2003

Justice for Gyorgy Gongadze

Fight For Press Freedom

The National Union of Journalists invites you to a Public Meeting at 7.00pm on Tuesday 16 September In the Music Room, Foreign Press Association No. 11, Carlton House Terrace, London SW1

THE THIRD ANNIVERSARY
OF THE MURDER OF GYORGY GONGADZE,
OUR UKRAINIAN COLLEAGUE

Main speaker:
MYROSLAVA GONGADZE,
Gyorgy's widow

On 16 September 2000, Gyorgy Gongadze, editor of the Ukrainska Pravda web site, disappeared. His headless body was found in a ditch near Kyiv. Then, a bodyguard of Ukrainian president Leonid Kuchma released an audio tape, on which the president and senior ministers could apparently be heard conspiring to harm Gongadze. In the three years since Gyorgy’s death, official investigations have failed to take this tape into account. Recently (July 2003) a key witness died in mysterious circumstances. The NUJ believes this case is a touchstone for media freedom in Europe, and we call for an independent international investigation in to it.

How to get there

From Charing Cross: turn onto the Strand and walk to Trafalgar Square. Take the third road which leads under Admiralty Arch and onto The Mall. Walk for approx. 250 yards on the right hand side until you come to The Duke of York Steps (very large statue of the Duke of York). Turn right at the top of the steps and number 11 Carlton House Terrace is directly on your right. [streetmap]
