MOSCOW, June 6 (Itar-Tass) — Chairman of the Investigative Committee /SK/ Alexander Bastrykin said more arrests will be made in the case over riots in Bolotnaya Square.
Bastrykin said so in an interview to the newspaper Rossiiskaya Gazeta to be published on Thursday.
"Without disclosing the secret of the investigation, I'll tell you that the probe is continuing and that more arrests will be made. We're only interested in the persons who masterminded the attacks on police, offered resistance and beat them up," the SK chief said.
He did not name the number of persons who might become new defendants in the criminal case.
"Before detaining someone, we must have solid evidence of his or her illegitimate actions to convince the court. We carried an expert examination on the first three suspects, which proved that those people had indeed breached the law," Bastrykin said, "they not only resisted police, but also attacked them. It's a criminal action in any country."
