Prosecutor General Oleksandr Medvedko urges Mykola Melnychenko to hand over the original records to the Prosecutor General’s Office and give detailed evidence, according to Ukrayinska Pravda.
He stated that addressing lawmakers in the parliament during the hearings of Gongadze case.
He has noted that Melnychenko was interrogated on December 6, 8 and 12 2005 and also twice in March 2006 but his evidence appeared to be insufficient.
“Unfortunately we have not got the necessary information and the original records. At that Melnychenko accounted that for distrust to security services and the necessity of consulting the victim party. He left Ukraine in March and we have not heard of him ever since,” pointed out Medvedko.
According to him, the expert analysis has ascertained that the voices on the records may belong to Kuchma and Kravchenko but since the records are not original experts are not able to establish their authenticity.
“That’s why it is impossible to state implication of the high ranked officials to this crime,” marked the Prosecutor General.
