September 15, 2009 2:31 PM ET

On the eve of the ninth anniversary of the murder of Ukrainian journalist Georgy Gongadze,  we issued the following statement...

“Nine years after the murder of Georgy Gongadze, his family and friends still do not know who ordered the brutal slaying of our colleague,” said CPJ Executive Director Joel Simon. “Authorities achieved progress by arresting his killers and locating valuable evidence, and we commend that. However, to accomplish long overdue justice in this case, Ukrainian prosecutors should bring to court the masterminds of this brazen crime.”
