Vitaly Matselyukh, the lawyer of Iryna Nozdrovska, the advocate and human right activist found dead on January 1 initiated his own investigation of the murder as 112 Ukraine broadcasted.
According to the advocate, it is planned to involve the detective agencies in the investigation.
‘There is no confidence in the law enforcement bodies now so we employ the assistance of the detective agencies and we want to involve them in this case to extend the investigation. We talk about the national agent. We also employed the assistance of the detectives from the ‘Sheryf’ Holding Company’, he said.
The advocate also added that he does not exclude the hypothesis that the close people to Dmytro Rossoshansky who killed the sister of Nozdrovska in 2015 in the car accident can be involved in the murder of Iryna but he will also concern the other hypotheses.
We remind relatives of Iryna Nozdrovska reported her disappearance on December 29. She disappeared on the way from Kyiv in Vyshgorodska area. She investigated the death of her sister, who in September 2015 died in an accident with the car of Dmytro Rossoshansky, the nephew of a district judge, who was in a state of drug intoxication at the time of the accident.
Two years after the accident, Iryna was able to obtain punishment for Rossoshansky. At the end of May 2017 the court sentenced him to 7 years in prison, but on December 27 he almost escaped from custody: in the Court of Appeal of the Kyiv region, the lawyer tried to appeal the verdict and bring his client under amnesty, using the violations committed by the court of the first instance. As Irina's relatives said, she constantly received threats from Rossoshansky.
Also, the protest took place near the building of the National Police due to the murder of Nozdrovska with the demands to hold the objective investigation of the crime and dismiss Dmytro Tsenov, the Head of the National Police in Kyiv region.
The Interior Ministry of Ukraine claimed that the best specialists of the detection were involved in the investigation of Iryna Nozdrovska’s murder. It was also noted that if the specialists from other fields are needed they will be called immediately. The investigation considers four hypotheses of Nozdrovska and the main is her professional activity.
