Mosiychuk says confession of bribery result of "severe torture"
Ihor Mosiychuk, MP from the Radical Party, claimed today that his confession regarding bribery is the result of "severe torture," the MP’s press service wrote on Facebook.
"On October 7, being held in the SBU’s detention facility, suffering an internal bleeding and fainting, I was deprived of any medical care. Deliberately bringing me to such a grave condition, the PGO investigators offered me that I give evidence in my case, that confess in doing something I haven’t done, in exchange for help. They also demanded from me to testify against the leader of the Radical Party, Oleh Lyashko, MP from the Radiacl Party Andriy Lozoviy and Hennadiy Korban, leader of UKROP Party, who is now arrested," reads the statement.

"This testimony was at the moment my sole opportunity to survive. But I couldn’t slander my friends even under threat of death. PGo pulled not a single word out of me against Lyashko, Lozoviy, Korban or someone else," said the deputy.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the MP from the Radical Party, Ihor Mosiychuk, pleaded guilty to receiving illegal benefits, according to a PGO investigator.
