MOSCOW, December 4 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow prosecutors will supervise the probe into the criminal case over the beating of Rossiya Channel journalists at a city district administration building in October. "The Babushkinsky district prosecutor's office has agreed that opening a criminal case over the beating of a shooting team from the Rossiya Channel, at the Severnoye Medvedkovo administration building was legal, and will supervise the probe," a prosecutor told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
On October 25, officials beat up representatives of the Rossiya Television Channel who had turned up together with applicants in order to shoot a report. "Fearing the dissemination of the circumstances of the conflict with the citizens during the meeting with them, the officials decided to prevent the journalists' work," he said.
The journalists complained to the local police station.
"Having examined the materials, the prosecutors retrieved them from the police and handed them over to the Babushkinsky district investigation department for pre-investigation check, by the results of which a criminal case was opened against the guilty persons under Article 286, Part 3 /exceeding authority and use of violence/, according to the prosecutor.
