'' We have lodged a complaint with ECHR, asking to acknowledge the fact of infringement on the defendant's rights (illegal arrest and illegal extension of his term in custody) and consequently, demand a compensation from Russia worth 100,000 euros," the lawyer said.
It is a second complaint filed to the Strasbourg court on the Manezh square riot case. Earlier, another defendant, Ruslan Khubayev, had filed a similar complaint.
The mass riot was staged in the center of Moscow on December 11 following murder of Spartak soccer fan Yegor Sviridov was killed in clashes with men of Caucasian descent.
Sviridov’s murder triggered mass protests in Moscow Manezh Square in which up to 5,000 soccer fans and representatives of nationalistic organizations were involved. Police, which detained six suspects hot on the heels, soon released five of them on condition that they should not leave Moscow, This police resolution aroused mass protests which turned into open clashes with police,
Under an investigation are Igor Bereznyuk- a citizen of Belarus and member of the Other Russia public organization not registered yet, two activists of the Other Russia group - Kirill Unchuk, Ruslan Khubayev and also Leonid Panin and Alexander Kosevin. All the suspects have been kept in custody pending final results of the investigation.
