The cross examination of Oleksandr Popovitch, one of the four alleged killers of Géorgiy Gongadze continued behind closed doors on 25 May 2006. The case was adjourned on 26 May until 9 June because one of the judges had to leave for another case.
The court completed the cross examination of Oleksandr Popovitch on 9 June.
Judges will continue questioning another of the four accused, Mykola Protassov, which started on 9 June, when the case resumes on 20 June.
Elsewhere, Reporters Without Borders notes the plan of the mayor of Kiev to raise a monument in memory of Géorgiy Gongadze and other journalists who were victims of violations of freedom of expression in Ukraine. The mayor, Leonid Chernovetski, will decide on the form and site of the monument at the end of the week.
