Kherson: SBU prevents contract murder of businessman

SBU officers prevented the contract murder of a Kherson businessman.

The law enforcers established that the Kyiv businessman decided to take revenge on two former Kherson-based partners following a deep misunderstanding over financial and property issues.

The SBU operatives documented that the businessman via intermediaries appealed to the criminal circles of the southern region, asking to find the executor of the task. He planned to kill one of the partners and to intimidate the second one threatening grave bodily harm to his family members and destruction of property.

The offender was detained under the court decision in Kyiv and was served a notice of suspicion in committing the crimes stipulated by Articles 14, Part 2 Paragraph 11 Article 115 and Part 2 Article 194 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

The operation was conducted jointly with the Police investigators under the procedural supervision of the Regional Prosecutor’s Office.

The urgent investigative and operative actions are under way.
