Vienna, 20 July 2017 – The South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) expressed their support of local and international human rights organisations that urge authorities in Ukraine to investigate the death of Pavel Grigorievich Sheremet (Павел Григорьевич Шеремет / Павел Рыгоравіч Шарамет), a Belarusian-born Russian and Ukrainian journalist.
Sheremet, a journalist and morning talk show host was killed on 20 July 2016 by a car bomb that was placed in his vehicle. One year later, the perpetrators behind his murder have not been found or sentenced. <br><br>
SEEMO remind institutions in Ukraine that the lack of action when investigating attacks on journalists and the cases of their murders, sends a negative signal regarding the state of human rights and media freedoms.
SEEMO is a network of editors, media executives and leading journalists in South, East and Central Europe.
