The Prosecutor General of Ukraine Viktor Shokin addressed to the Secretary General of the Interpol Junger Stock a petition to review a decision to refuse to declare in the international wanted list of former high position bureaucrats and law enforcement officers of Ukraine, informs the Ukrainian Prosecutor General's office on the last working day of the week.
Ukrainian police sought an international investigation of former bureaucrats and 19 soldiers of the detachment of special purpose " Berkut ", who are accused of the premeditated murder of 39 protesters during the protests on the Maidan in Kiev. However, Interpol does not represent them in the investigation, because such cases are politically motivated.
"review of the attorney General, this position of Interpol is hardly justified, taking into account the fact that at the conclusion of both the Ukrainian investigation authority and an international Advisory group, established by the Secretary-General of the Council of Europe, the Staff of special forces of militia "Golden eagle" reasonably suspected of committing these crimes, " the General Prosecutor's office informs.
the Ministry stressed that in criminal trials against former bureaucrats and law enforcement officers there are no political underlying reason.
"I ask you, dear Mr. Stock, to take into account the above circumstances and to reconsider the denial of wanted persons," said Shokin.
