Reuters Report: Published by Yahoo News

Excerpt ..
KIEV (Reuters) - Former Ukraine interior minister Yuri Kravchenko, linked to the murder of an investigative journalist, apparently committed suicide on Friday, police said.

President Viktor Yushchenko has accused the former Ukraine government of covering up the murder in 2000 of reporter Georgiy Gongadze, the most famous criminal case in post-Soviet Ukraine.

The body of Kravchenko was found at his country home outside the capital Kiev. Investigators said a preliminary investigation pointed to suicide.

Kravchenko was interior minister when Gongadze was killed and he had been due to give evidence to prosecutors on Friday

"If he truly took his own life, it means he was afraid of responsibility for those acts connected with Gongadze's murder," Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko told reporters. "If it is not suicide ... then I believe it was an attempt to conceal information on the murder."
