Former Intelligence Chief a fugitive from justice

by Aussiegirl

Readers of this blog and other venues on Ukraine will remember the story of crusading journalist, Georgy Gongadze, whose headless corpse turned up in a ditch outside Kyiv. There is credible evidence via audiotapes made by one of Kuchma's guards that Kuchma himself ordered his murder. Looks like the chickens are coming home to roost as the Procurator General is wasting no time following the inauguration in pursuing justice.

The following via Interfax:

Former chief of the Ukrainian Interior Ministry's external intelligence service Oleksiy Pukach is being searched for now, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Svyatoslav Piskun said at a news briefing in Kyiv on Friday.

Pukach has been charged with destroying documents indicating that opposition journalist Georgy Gongadze was under surveillance.
