Ukrainian security forces charged with pressure on Catholic university rector

May 24, 2010

The rector of the Ukrainian Catholic University has reported that he received a visit from a representative of the state security agency-- the former KGB-- who ordered him to sign a statement acknowledging that some student protests could be interpreted as provocations, and result in criminal charges. The rector, Father Borys Gudziak, said that the official's visit was a bid at intimidation; he noted, too, that his telephone line has been tapped.
