Ihor Pavlovsky, one of the suspects in the high-profile case of the murder of activist Kateryna Hanzdiuk is released from the detention center. Masi Nayyem, the lawyer, posted that on Facebook.
'The judge ruled so, granting the prosecutor's office's motion. He is now out of the remand center. He's under house arrest, obliged to wear the ankle monitor. It seems to me that they want this case buried', the lawyer wrote.
Pavlovsky, the former assistant MP is among the suspects in the violent murder of Ukrainian anti-corruption activist Kateryna Handziuk, which took place in Kherson, southern Ukraine in July 2018. Pavlovsky was detained in November 2018.
Kateryna Handziuk died at the age of 34 in autumn 2018. During the said attack, she was doused with sulphuric acid and thus suffered extreme consequences of that incident. Her death was caused by blood clot's detachment; the doctors also specified that the cause of death was multiple organ failure and chemical burns.
