Family lawyers of murdered Iryna Nozdrovska complained about the fact that they are not allowed to familiarizing with the case documents and the pretrial investigation body attempts to restrict them from receiving information on the case. Particularly, Tamila Ulianova and Oleksandr Panchenko, the lawyers claimed this to 112 Ukraine.
'We as the representatives of the suffered are not allowed to familiarizing with the case papers. Moreover, we see the contradictions in the facts announced by the mass media and the law enforcement bodies. We and our client during the questioning noticed people that are considered to be suspected of the crime and that are confirmed by the facts. However, we do not possess the information on the work out of these people during the investigation', Ulianova claimed.
The defense claimed that it learns the information in the case from the mass media.
'We will be present at the court session but we cannot express anything because the case is ruled by the pretrial investigation body to suspend us from all materials, information and we learn the information from the mass media, some political experts inform us', Panchenko claimed.
It was reported on January 8th that the police detained the suspect in the murder of Nozdrovska. He received documents confirming charges made against him.
The mass media reported that the crime was committed by Yury Rossoshansky, born in 1954. The man is the father of Dmytro Rossoshansky - a driver who, in September 2015, killed Nozdrovska sister in a car accident - Svitlana Sapatynska. However, the defense of the family of Nozdrovska doubts such hypothesis of the investigation because Dmytro Rossoshansky could be pardoned. It will be illogical for Yury Rossoshansky to commit the murder.
As it was reported earlier relatives of Iryna Nozdrovska reported her disappearance on December 29th. She disappeared on the way from Kyiv in Vyshgorodska area. She investigated the death of her sister, who in September 2015 died in a car accident caused by 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 27th 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.
