Former President of Georgia / Leader of the New Forces Movement political party Mikheil Saakashvili has stated that human rights activist, lawyer Iryna Nozdrovska, who had been murdered, also cooperated with members of his party and took part in his legal defense.

Saakashvili told this to journalists before his questioning at the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU), Ukrainian News Agency reports.

Saakashvili said the public community must monitor closely the investigation of the murder.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the body of Nozdrovska was found on January 1, 2018 in the river in Vyshhorod suburbs (Kyiv region).

As a lawyer and human rights advocate, Nozdrovska worked on a criminal case of Dmytro Rossoshanskyi who stroke her sister Svitlana Sapatynska to death in his car in 2015.

On January 8, the police detained father of the convict, Yurii Rossoshanskyi, on suspicion of murder of Nozdrovska.

On January 9, the court arrested Yurii Rossoshanskyi for two months without a possibility of a bail.
