Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine stated that the information about alleged intermittence of the investigation into the crimes committed during the Euromaidan was false. This was reported by the press service of the Prosecutor General's Office.

"The spread information about alleged intermittence of the investigation into the crimes committed in connection with the mass protests in 2013-2014 is false and manipulative," the statement said.

"According to the legislation of Ukraine, by November 20, the prosecutor's offices will have lost the right for the pre-trial investigation, and all proceedings should be transferred to the relevant pre-trial investigation bodies after the audit is committed," Prosecutor General's Office added.

As we reported earlier, Serhiy Horbatyuk, the recently dismissed Chief of Special Investigations Department of Prosecutor General's Office said that the investigation into the cases of murders and persecutions of Euromaidan activists is currently postponed.
