Police release activist Bagomed Bagomedov detained at rally in Makhachkala
Bagomed Bagomedov, who on June 12 tried to start an anticorruption rally in Makhachkala, has been released from the ROVD (District Interior) for the Soviet District of the city.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that today, the Soviet District Court of Makhachkala has sentenced each of six persons, brought to the police station from the place of the rally, to a fine in the amount of 500 roubles.
The Makhachkala City Mayor's Office did not sanction the rally for June 12, and its organizer Marat Ismailov decided to hold the event without the sanction of the authorities. On June 12, the police detained Bagomed Bagomedov, who tried to start the rally and upheld a black and red flag.
"Yesterday, they told me to pay a fine, allegedly for waving a flag and speaking at a rally. I refused to pay the fine, since I did not have time to speak, because I was at once detained. I have warned policemen that if they collect money from me through court marshals, then I will go on hunger strike until the money is returned to me," Bagomed Bagomedov said.
According to Bagomed Bagomedov, no charges have been filed against him.
