A court has released a former MP aide, Ihor Pavlovskyy, who is suspected of involvement in the murder of Kherson activist Kateryna Handzyuk, under house arrest and obliged him to wear an ankle monitor, the lawyer of the Handzyuk family, Masi Nayyem, has said on Facebook.
"The judge took this decision to grant prosecutors' request. Now he is not in a remand centre. He is under house arrest and is obliged to wear a monitor," he said.
He shared a concern that there are "attempts to bury" the case.
On 31 July 2018, Kateryna Handzyuk was attacked with acid in central Kherson. She died in hospital on 4 November.
