– Delcam statement
Delcam confirms that Mr Pavlo Lapshyn was on a temporary work placement at the Company’s offices in Birmingham and therefore was not an employee of Delcam.
His placement at Delcam began on 24 April 2013 and was part of an EU project, which involved academic institutions in the Ukraine and the UK as well as European partners.
Delcam staff were deeply shocked and saddened by the events that unfolded over the summer and the Company was pleased to offer its full support and cooperation during police enquiries.
