The Prosecutor General’s Office served one more law enforcer with charges in the persecution of protesters during mass protests in Maidan, Kyiv, in 2013 as the office reported.

“It is established that senior investigator to prevent the protests groundlessly, without any evidence of involvement in the commitment of the crime, illegally detained, supposedly for mass unrest, drew up and signed the notification of suspicion to a partaker of the protest. The militiaman resorted to the forgery in office. Consequently, he filed to the district court of Kyiv groundless appeal on choosing the restrictive measure in the form of arrest toward known to be innocent person and it was illegally granted by the court,” the message said.

Currently, it is to decide whether the restrictive measure and termination are required.
