"On the fact of yesterday's attack in Grozny on the acting public prosecutor of the Zavodskoy District, the Investigatory Committee at the Russian Prosecutor's Office for the Chechen Republic has opened a criminal case under Article 296 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation ("Threat or violent actions related to execution of justice or preliminary investigation")," said a source from the Republic's Prosecutor's Office. "The attackers beat the prosecutor right at the building of the District Court, threatened to kill him and then disappeared."

He has added that in this trial prosecutor Remizov acted as state prosecutor. "The unknown persons who attacked him were, most likely, either former 'colleagues' of the defendants or their relatives. They openly threatened to kill the prosecutor for his participation in the trial," he said.
