Golos Party Leader Intends to Release Kuzmenko
The president of the Golos political party, Kira Rudik, intends to release Julia Kuzmenko, doctor and volunteer, suspected of the murder of journalist Pavel Sheremet.
The politician said so in a comment to Ukrinform.
“Seven months ago when this case was first announced, we said that we needed stronger concrete evidence to keep people in prison. Now we see that no such evidence was presented, and people continue to sit in jail. This case is the personal responsibility of Minister Avakov, for whose resignation our party is now collecting signatures. We have seen how this minister refused to ask forgiveness from the family and Kirill Tlyavov and d other victims of police arbitrariness. Now having the Sheremet case as such on which his career depends, we don’t know what it will lead to – what kind of pressure on the court, what kind of work with the evidence. “This is why I believe that at the moment what is going on with the case will be the most correct, we cannot control it in any way, and that is true, because the judicial system should be independent we can n Ensure that the people under investigation are not at the pre-trial detention center, but at home, which is why I will take the doctor, Julia Kouzmenko, is out on bail, “said Rudik.
