MOSCOW, July 15 (Itar-Tass) - The lawyer of Artur Minbulatov, suspected of involvement in the attack on State Duma lawmaker Roman Khudyakov, will appeal his arrest.
"Under the law, we had three days to appeal the arrest. The deadline expires today, so are filing an appeal with Moscow City Court," lawyer Sergei Klyuzhev told Itar-Tass on Monday, adding that no charges had been brought against his client yet.
Last week, Moscow's Dorogomilovsky court sanctioned a two-month arrest of Makhachkala resident Minbulatov, one of the suspects in the attack on Khudyakov. Klyuzhev insisted on a million-rouble bail for his client.
In the evening of July 9, a Toyota Land Cruiser driver in Moscow's Berezhkovskaya Embankment, made a dangerous maneuver and forced Khudakov's car to stop. The Toyota's driver and passangers got out, and using invectives, beat up the lawmaker and fled the scene.
Four suspects, all natives of Dagestan, were detained in Volgograd region at a road police post near the village of Gorodishche the next day and flown to Moscow.
Criminal proceedings were opened under the penal code article on battery for hooligan motives and hooliganism. Khudyakov identified two of his attackers: driver Minbulatov and passenger Zakarya Gadzhiyev.
Both suspects were placed under arrest.
