Owner’s Domodedovo airport Dmitry Kamenshchik was detained by the staff of the first investigation Department of the Main investigation Department of the IC of Russia. This is stated in the message of the RCDS submitted to .

Kamenshchik arrested in the criminal case against former top managers of the airport Svetlana Trichinae, Andrew Danilov and Vyacheslav Nekrasov. According to the interlocutor in law enforcement, Kamenshchik was detained during questioning.

The owner of Domodedovo charged with committing a crime under article 238 of the Criminal code (fulfillment of works or rendering of services that do not meet the requirements of safety, entailed on imprudence death of two or more persons).

According to investigators, Kamenshchik, Trishina, Nekrasov and Danilov introduced a new screening system at the entrances to the airport, “which has led to increased vulnerability of the airport and as a consequence, the provision of services in the field of civil aviation that does not meet safety requirements”. Since 2007, Domodedovo operated by the regulation, in which the passengers were held with use of the framework and hand-held metal detectors (if needed). However, because of the resulting queues and increasing passenger growth has been necessary to arrange additional inputs, which required financial investment. Investigators believe that instead, the management of Domodedovo has approved a new regulation that does not require total control. In the TFR calculated that in the end, after the metal detector was not more than 2% of people.

RCDS believes that the result of this innovation was the fact that in January 2011, a suicide bomber Magomed Yevloyev “freely” entered into the airport with hidden under clothing with explosive devices and staged the attack.

According to the press Secretary of the Basmanny court Juno Tsarev, the request for the arrest of a Kamenshchik is already on the court. The meeting will be held tomorrow.

A source familiar with the investigation said that the petition to arrest Kamenshchik signed by the investigator for particularly important cases of GSU SKR Sergey Dubinskiy. In August he made the decision to discontinue the investigation in the case of default of requirements of transport safety, instituted on the terrorist act in Domodedovo. The investigation lasted 53 months, the result is that the TFR came to the conclusion that the actions of the defendants there is no crime.

He stressed that “analysis allows you to set the data discrepancy investigation actually occurred events”. “Declare the absence of guilt in the deaths and injury of people by officials”, — he said at the hearing. Later the Prosecutor’s office of the court’s decision to arrest was appealed.
