The chief investigator of the country argues that the servants of Themis its decision "violated the law" of the Investigative Committee of Russia. Prosecutor General's Office with such arguments do not agree.

On the complaint filed in the Armed Forces personally Alexander Bastrykin, it became known during the hearing at Basmanny Court of Moscow. It is now considered the request of lawyers Temirgaliev Kulikova and to invalidate the decision of the investigator on attracting former employees of the Interior Ministry as defendants. Defenders primarily refer to the Supreme Court decision of September 2013 that the arrest and Temirglalieva Kulikova was declared illegal in 2011. The representative of the RF IC Basmanny asked the court to postpone the trial due to the fact that Alexander Bastrykin has filed a complaint against this decision to the supervisory authority of the Russian Federation Armed Forces. In it the head of the Investigative Committee says that the recognition of the illegal arrest of ex-employees of the Interior Ministry of Russia "violates the rights and interests of the investigators" RF IC, which are engaged in "gambling business". The Russian Supreme Court has not yet decided whether to accept the complaint Bastrykin in production or reject it. In connection withthis Basmanny court has postponed hearings on the illegality of the charge Kulikov and Temirgaliev until December 20 of 2013.

Lawyers for former employees of the Interior Ministry believe that Bastrykin did not have the right to file a complaint in the Armed Forces. "Neither the RF IC or its chairman are not established by the CCP, parties in the proceedings - said" Rosbalt "defender Elena Vasilieva Kulikova -. These include prosecutors, defense lawyers, victims and the accused the RF IC to any of the persons in this category does not apply. ".

Source Agency in the Prosecutor General's Office said it did not see any violations in the decision of the Supreme Court on the illegality of the arrest and Temirglalieva Kulikova.

Recall, on the recognition of the illegal arrest of ex-employees of the Interior Ministry insisted the Deputy Prosecutor General Viktor Grin. In its submission to the Supreme Court, he pointed out that the June 7, 2011 the RF IC opened a case against members of the Ministry of Interior and Temrgilieva Kulikova. Two days later the Prosecutor General canceled this decision. However, by this time, investigators managed to connect with another criminal case - against fours senior staff Mosoblprokuratury (Ignatenko, Urumova, Glebov and Kaplun), which, according to the RF IC, "fronting" underground casinos. June 9 Basmanny Court chose Kulikov and Temirgaliev preventive measure in the form of detention.

According to Green, all of these actions and the consequences of servants of Themis was illegal. Of the decision to initiate proceedings against Ignatenko and Co "makes it clear that the full range of persons suspected of limited consequence of the prosecution staff of the Moscow region", which Kulikova Temirgaliev and can not be attributed. Consequently, the material in respect of them was connected to the "prosecutor's case" is illegal. What is confirmed and further investigation. Later RF IC allocated materials employees of the Interior Ministry in a separate proceeding.

The Supreme Court agreed with the position of the GP of Russia, and acknowledged the arrest unlawful Temirgaliev Kulikova and in September of 2013.

According to the RF IC, in early September 2010 the organizer of an illegal gambling business, Ivan Nazarov handed employee Mosoblprokuratury Dmitry Urumova $ 75 thousand., That thein one of the restaurants presented operatives of the 39th Division of the Office of "K" the Bureau of Special Technical Measures (BSTM) Ministry of Internal Affairs and Temirgaliev Kulikov. In return, the police did not carry out a special operation against illegal gambling halls Nazarov. Kulikov Temirgaliev and spent a year in custody, and then were released.

It should be noted that the RF IC tried to convey to the courts cases against Kulikova, Temirgaliev, ex-deputy prosecutor of the Moscow Region Alexander Ignatenko and even a number of defendants in the high-profile investigation. However, whenever the Prosecutor General found in incoming materials violations of the law committed by the RF IC, and therefore refused to confirm the indictment and refer the case to the courts. Under the custody right now there is not one person involved in the investigation.
