Ukraine: Viktor Petrovich Gorokhov
Viktor Gorokhov, a young farm worker from southern Ukraine, was reportedly sentenced to death by a court in the Ukraine; he had been convicted of the premeditated murder under aggravating circumstances of his parents-in-law. An unofficial source reports that he gave himself up voluntarily to the authorities and that he was subsequently admitted to a psychiatric hospital in Odessa. He is said to have no previous convictions. AI is calling for the sentence to be commuted.
