NOVOKUIBYSHEVSK, March 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s President Dmitry Medvedev will order prosecution to check the case of ecologist Suren Gazaryan, Head of the presidential council on development of civil society and human rights Mikhail Fedotov said on Thursday.
“The council has been discussing the case of Gazaryan many times, and the president said he would order prosecution to check the case most thoroughly,” Fedotov said after the meeting of the council in Novokuibyshevsk.
On November 13, 2011, activists of the Ecology Watch on the North Caucasus Suren Gazaryan and Evgeny Vitishko organised an action to protect the Black Sea shore. The ecologists claimed that local authorities in the Tuapse region had put up a fence around an area of seven hectares there.
The ecologists wrote on the fence: “This is our land,” “This is our forest.” A criminal case was opened for damaging property. The ecologists may be sentenced to five years behind the bars. On Wednesday, the court arrested Gazaryan for ten days.
