Aslan Iritov sentenced conditionally

The Nalchik City Court has found Aslan Iritov, a resident of the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic (KBR), guilty of using violence against a policeman and sentenced him to two years of conditional imprisonment.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on October 31, 2017, when the members of the "Volny Aul" (Free Village) organization were going to hold a rally, law enforcers came to Iritov's yard with a warning about the inadmissibility of a non-sanctioned action. According to the prosecution, Iritov, who is a disabled person (he has no wrists), inflicted a moderate injury to Khamidbi Gubashiev, a deputy head of the "E" Centre (the Centre for Combating Terrorism). Iritov himself complained that his family members received traumas in the incident; and he seeks criminal prosecution of the law enforcers, but refuses to admit his guilt.

Today, the Nalchik City Court has passed a decision on Aslan Iritov's case, accused of attacking policemen, and sentenced him to two years of conditional imprisonment, the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent has reported from the courtroom.
