MOSCOW, July 15 (Itar-Tass) - A lawyer appealed against the court's decision to arrest Zakarya Gadzhiyev, the second suspected attacker of State Duma lawmaker from the Liberal Democratic Party Roman Khudyakov.
"The appeal has already been lodged. There is no information when it might be considered," lawyer Mikhail Fomin told Itar-Tass, adding that investigators intend to officially charge Gadzhiyev on Tuesday, July 16.
Last week, Moscow's Dorogomilovsky court sanctioned the arrest of Makhachkala resident Gadzhiyev, suspected of attacking Khudyakov. The lawyer asked the court not to place him under arrest, but the court agreed with the investigators that Gadzhiyev, if at large, could escape.
Artur Minbulatov was arrested at the same time. Earlier on Monday, Minbulatov's lawyer Sergei Klyuzhev said he would appeal the arrest, too.
In the evening of July 9, a Toyota Land Cruiser driver in Moscow's Berezhkovskaya Embankment, made a dangerous maneuver and forced Khudyakov's car to stop. The Toyota's driver and passengers 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 were placed under arrest.
