Posts Tagged ‘journalist slain’

I just read this interesting article published by Kyiv Post, a newspaper run by an American editor and a publication that publishes stories on the goings-on in Kyiv, the capital city of Ukraine.

The article is about the still unsolved case of a murdered journalist named Georgiy Gongadze, the crusading Kyiv journalist who founded the Ukrainska Pravda website and used the online news platform to criticize high-level corruption. He was slain in Ukraine in 2000.

The case is still been tried, and concerned people are still trying to get to the bottom of it all. It seems that it is being relegated to the bottom of the priority pile. But the widow of the slain journalist, Myroslava Gongadze, refuses to be swayed in getting the justice that her husband deserves. She is also a US-based journalist advocating human rights.
