Court examines investigators' refusal to open case on Geriev's kidnapping

The information about the kidnapping and application of violence to Zhalaudi Geriev, a "Caucasian Knot" correspondent, was not confirmed, says the statement of the Investigating Department for Chechnya of the Investigating Committee of the Russian Federation (ICRF). Earlier, the court refused to send the data about Geriev's kidnapping for examination outside Chechnya, the defence has reminded.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on November 15 the Supreme Court (SC) of the Chechen Republic began considering the complaint against the verdict to Geriev. On December 13, the defence pointed to investigators' interference into the trial.

Today, the advocate Alaudi Musaev has petitioned for studying the protocol of the court session of November 23, during which the defence stated a crime committed against Geriev and asked not to send the case files for examination to the Republic's Department of the ICRF.

The "Caucasian Knot" treats the case against Zhalaudi Geriev as fabricated, and accusations against him of drug dealing – as completely far-fetched.
