Killed lawyer Hraboskyi was afraid of assault: on Feb. 14 he informed his weapons and phone went missing, - reporter

Killed lawyer Yurii Hrabovskyi expected that he could be eliminated from the case by various means.
As reported by Censor.NET, this was announced by Hromadske Radio reporter Iryna Romaliiska on her Facebook page.

"Yurii Hrabovskyi was regularly saying he was afraid of something. He expected that he could be eliminated from the case by prosecutors by means of arrests and detentions.

One of the key suspects in giving "titushky" weapons from the storages of the Interior Ministry during Maidan protests, Roman Zavorotnii, might be released from cutody.

This might be a result of a series of court decisions, Censor.NET reports citing the Legal Advisory Group.

On Jan. 21 2016, the special investigations administration of the main investigation department of the GPU sent an indictment to the Sviatoshynskyi district court of Kyiv in the criminal proceeding according to which the Ministry of Internal Affairs employees, pursuant to the illegal orders of the former Interior Minister of Ukraine Yurii Zakharchenko and others, illegally provided more than 1,500 AK74 rifles and nearly 800,000 cartridges for them to police officers and "titushky". One of the suspects in the case is a "titushka" Roman Zavorotnii.

On Jan. 27, Judge Pochupailo sent the case to the Appeal Court of Kyiv for the determination of jurisdiction. The period of detention of Zavorotnii was extended by two months - until 03.26.2016.   In Ukrainian/український
The scheme by which Rostyslav Zavorotnii, suspected of arming "titushky" during the Maidan protests, is to be released on March 27, can also be applied for the release of the former head of the SBU in Kyiv and Kyiv region Oleksandr Shchoholev, who headed the SBU "anti-terrorist" operation on Feb. 18-20, 2014.

Human rights activist and executive director of the Lawyers Advisory Group Taras Hataliak said, Censor.NET reports.

According to him, the Court of Appeal of Kyiv is to determine the jurisdiction of the case in 12:15 a.m. today, i.e. it will assign the district court which will consider the indictment of the prosecutor's office regarding Shchoholev. If the Court of Appeal or the district court delay the decision, the term of Shchoholev's custody may simply end and the law enforcers will be forced to release him, he stressed.

According to him, Shchoholev's lawyers deliberately delay the process to declare the disqualification of judges, prosecutors, etc. "The risk that Shchoholev may eventually be released is quite high," the human rights activist said.

Hataliak stressed that such a scheme has already been used several times, in particular, in the case of Zavorotnii. He does not exclude that there is some "headquarters", where various procedural moves are designed to delay consideration of cases, which leads to the release of the key suspects in crimes against Maidan activists.   In Ukrainian/український
