The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) has completed a pre-trial investigation in the criminal proceedings regarding chairman of Kherson regional council Vladyslav Manger, and his assistant Oleksiy Levin who are suspected of organizing the attack on Kateryna Handziuk. This was reported by SBU’s press service.
"All materials are ready, SBU staff have done their work and have put together an evidence base that will clearly prove the position of the prosecution in the court. I hope that this case will be considered first. The perpetrators and instigators of Kateryna Handziuk's murder will receive a well-deserved punishment,” SBU’s head Ivan Bakanov stated.
According to the investigation, Manger is suspected of instigating the attack on Handziuk, which led to her death, by prior agreement with Levin.
