MOSCOW, June 7 (Itar-Tass) — More persons will be brought to ··criminal responsibility in the case of the Bolotnaya Square riots on May 6, Chairman of the Russian Investigative Committee (SK) Alexander Bastrykin said in an interview with the Rossiyskaya Gazeta daily.
“Without disclosing the secrets of the investigation, I can say that the investigations will be continued and there will be more detentions,” the SK head said. “We are only interested in those people who actively organised the attacks on policemen, offered resistance and beat them.”
However, he did not specify the number of persons who may become defendants in the criminal case, without confirming that mass detentions will be made.
“We must, before detaining anyone, have strong evidence of his illegal actions, which would convince the court. On the first three suspects in the May 6 riots case we have already conducted an expert examination, according to which, exactly these people rampaged and violated the law,” said Bastrykin. “It was a very complicated forensic examination of photos and video documents. Incidentally, one of those arrested, having seen the materials has already pleaded guilty, and the second has also admitted his guilt, although partially. These people not just offered resistance to the police. They assaulted police officers. It is a crime in any country.”
