MOSCOW, May 17 (Itar-Tass) — Magistrate of Moscow City's Presnya district court has turned down a petition wherein she was asked to issue an instruction to the Chief of the city's Investigation Committee to bring to justice the police officers who had allegedly pilfered a box with cash money during an operation to restore law and order in the improvized camp of radical opposition activists on the downtown Kudrinskaya Square.
Justice Dina Azarova turned down the petition filed by lawyer Vadim Prokhorov, who represents the interests of the Solidarity movement co-chairman Ilya Yashin.
According to Prokhorov, "the police officers whose identities are not known yet confiscated a pasteboard box with cash moneyfrom the camp and took it away on a Z-car to an unknown destination."
In the wake of it, he asked the court to issue an instruction to the top officials of Moscow City's Investigations Committee on establishing the policemen's identities and bringing them to account on charges of stealing other persons' property and abusing occupational powers.
In addition, the magistrates court rejected a petition by the lawyers to classify the actions of police officers towards Ilya Yashin as unlawful.
Prokhorov said that after the detention Yashin was placed "into a severly limited space without ventillation and with a concrete floor."
"He was denied hot meals for thirteen hours and got food only from his associates," the lawyer said.
Upon hearing the arguments provided by the sides and examining the materials they presented, Justice Azarova did not find any grounds for entertaining Prokhorov's petition.
