Former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko should be questioned on her possible involvement in a criminal case on the assassination of MP Yevhen Shcherban, Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka said at a press conference on Thursday.

According to the Prosecutor General, the investigation continues into the case instituted back in 1996.

"We are studying all scenarios, including the one related to the business activities of Yevhen Shcherban," Pshonka said and added the investigation knows who assassinated Shcherban, "the main thing is to find those, who ordered the murder."

The official informed that all gang members involved into the assassination are known, and some of them died rather "suddenly", mostly were killed. "I don't understand why there is so much fuzz about renewal of the investigation," Pshonka asked.

He noted that the Prosecutor General's Office had a document indicating that USD 2.2 million was transferred from the accounts of the United Energy Systems of Ukraine (UESU) Corporation, which was led by Tymoshenko in the 1990s, to one of the assassins of Shcherban and his wife. "They are the Milchenkos," Pshonka specified.

The official also pointed out that the investigation has questions to former Premier Pavlo Lazarenko, but the PGO still does not have a permission to question him in the US.

"Tymoshenko must be questioned on this case, at least about those accounts I told you before," the Prosecutor General said and added that if Tymoshenko proves her alibi, the investigation will abandon the version of her involvement and will move further.
