Action promised on murdered journalist

New Ukrainian president, Viktor Yushchenko, has promised to
prioritise the case of murdered journalist Georgy Gongadze.
Yushchenko, addressing European parliamentarians in Strasbourg on
Tuesday, two days after his inauguration, said his government would
“meet the moral challenge” of the Gongadze case and press law
enforcement agencies to get it into court as soon as possible.
Gongadze’s murder in September 2000 became the biggest scandal
faced by Yushchenko’s predecessor, Leonid Kuchma. The Georgian-born
campaigning internet journalist was followed by security agents before
his death, and beheaded by his killers.
