MOSCOW, March 4. /TASS/. The Moscow City Court has found legal the decision to put under house arrest the main owner of Moscow’s Domodedovo airport, Dmitry Kamenshchik, accused of security violations exposed in the wake of the 2011 suicide terrorist bomb attack that caused heavy casualties. A TASS correspondent reports that the court thereby dismissed the prosecutor’s statement regarding the selected restrictive measure and the defense lawyer’s complaint.
"The court ruled to leave the earlier decision by Moscow’s Basmanny Court unchanged and the defense lawyer’s complaint and prosecutor’s statement not sustained," the judge said.
Kamenshchik was denied the right to meet his common law wife and make two-hour strolls a day. Nor did the court find any reasons for releasing him on 50 million ruble bail.
On February 19 Kamenshchik was put under house arrest till April 18. He is a fourth person involved in the criminal case opened under Part 3 of Article 238 of Russia’s Criminal Code (Works or Services Failing to Meet Security Requirements that Resulted in the Negligent Death of Two or More People). The other accomplices under arrest are the managing director of the closed joint stock company Domodedovo Airport Aviation Security Andrey Danilov and former director of the airport complex Vyacheslav Nekrasov. The former head of the Russian office of Airport Management Company Limited, Svetlana Trishina, is under house arrest.
The investigators claim that Kamenshchik, Trishina, Nekrasov and Danilov had introduced a new system of luggage inspection at all entrances to the airport building that increased the degree of its vulnerability and resulted in the provision of civil aviation services failing to meet security requirements. The investigation claims that inadequate measures to maintain passenger security at the airport allowed a suicide bomber in January 2011 to enter the building of the Domodedovo airport unnoticed and set off the explosive device attached to his body. The blast killed 37 and inured 172.
All of the accused plead innocence.
