“We have gathered enough evidence to accuse Tymoshenko and Lazarenko of contract killing”


KYIV, Feb 21, 2013 (UBO) – The Prosecutor General's Office (PGO) of Ukraine has collected enough evidence to charge Yulia Tymoshenko and Pavlo Lazarenko of funding the killing of MP Yevhen Shcherban, First Deputy Prosecutor General Renat Kuzmin said on the air of Echo of Moscow Wednesday.


“We have gathered enough evidence to accuse Tymoshenko and Lazarenko of contract killing,” Kuzmin said. He also said that Tymoshenko and Lazarenko fully paid for the murder of Shcherban six months after the crime, and only after the killer's threats to deal with them.


“The money was paid in six months. The work was done, and the money, as usually, was not paid,” Kuzmin said. On top he added that the killer threatened Tymoshenko and Lazarenko. “He threatened them with the same if there is no money,” the deputy prosecutor said.


As reported, on January 18 this year, prosecutors formally presented Yulia Tymoshenko a notification of suspicion of organizing the murder of MP Yevhen Shcherban in 1996.
