автор матеріалів про голову Федерації футболу Андрія Павелка отримав погрози

“Репортери без кордонів” пишуть, що швейцарський журналіст Arnaud Bédat, автор серії матеріалів про голову Федерації футболу України Андрія Павелка, став отримувати погрози вбивством. Арно стверджує, що отримав дзвінок із українського номера, який він пов’язує з Павелком. Журналіст офіційно звернувся до швейцарського уряду із проханням про охорону.

“Bédat’s articles focused on a 4 million euro loan that Pavelko received on behalf of the FFU from the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), based in the Swiss town of Nyon. Last November, Bédat received a phone call from a Ukrainian number in which an unidentified person made explicit threats against his life and told him he was not safe in Switzerland.

According to Bédat, the phone number is one of those used by Pavelko, who has meanwhile just been elected to UEFA’s executive committee. Bédat thought the threats were disturbing enough to file a complaint with the Swiss Confederation’s justice department, which passed it on to the authorities in the Canton of Jura, where Bédat lives.

Despite his many years as an investigative reporter, Bédat said such threats “are harder to bear than you would think”. He has formally asked the Swiss authorities to provide him with protection”.
